  • A small and beautiful zoo, where the grounds are so lovely I almost felt I was in. Japanese garden a couple times. I loved the amphibian house and the tiny colorful Panamanian frogs.
  • This zoo is a wonderful place to stop for the afternoon with the family. There are places to have lunch, and indeed there are vendors in the park hawking delicious local foods at a prices that can not be beat. This Zoo has many animals, but of special note for the visitor: the Tapir, which is not commonly seen outside of Central America.
  • Most of the animals were in nice cages, the view is incredible and there is an investigation center where they research about the fungus that is bringing frogs close to extinction. The animals seem to be in good conditions, but there were a few that were in way too small cages. Still a good experience overall.
  • Great variety. Nice ambience.
  • Good fun for an hour. Basic but everything there you dont see in London
