  • Zoos in Germany are heaven on Earth, in contrast to this zoo. After the first few animals I had a guilty conscience, having supported the Zoo due to my entry. The Caimanane, for example, had a cage about 2 square meters of grade. The animals were not healthy or happy impression, but were apathetic. Was told that it be all animals that had survived without their help, which is why we were assumed that we are to find a pet-friendly environment. Injured animals should be allowed transitional aufpeppelt and free again. Sadly, it must be said that she better have caught it with death, as there. I can appeal only to the rationality of every human, not continue to support this zoo!

  • You can support this Zoo never with his visit! The majority of the cages is much too small and anything other than humanely. For example, there 2 caimans are kept large cage in a ca 3 × 1, 5 m. Also without the possibility to schwimnen. Most birds also have much to small häge which are almost empty. You can see many animals this attitude also, they have a half-dead and look really bad. Workers and gardeners take no account of the animals and how on a bird häge around a tree he grows wild from the häge out to cut out. Rabbits, chickens and pigs are kept there in a State of factory farming. We have us really very annoyed this zoo with a total of $10 to have supported (5 per person).

  • The story behind the international effort to rescue the Golden Frog (Rina Dorada) from extinction is the saving grace here. It's ground zero for when scientists first noticed the massive die off. Only...  more »

  • 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.
  • Rained pretty hard during our visit, but we still had a good time. Lots of interesting birds and animals to see.
  • 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.
