  • While is true is a Zoo, it only salvageable is the lagoon and the food. The Zoo this neglected, there are few animals that can be seen and how they are kept does not a good feeling. The lagoon if it is worthwhile. You go well with family, relaxing with a spectacular view, surrounded by green areas, so quiet. Lunch in the lagoon is super centers, the food is good and cheap, can not go.

  • It's a shame that it is offered as an attraction. The only respectable is the lagoon. What is it? Zoo. Collection Center. People young? Animals hungry. Stressed. No space. Otorongos in cages small. I've seen crying to Europe to see the primitive conditions. The sale of liquor and food there is that alejsrla of the water. not be sending sewage into the lagoon? Should privatize it. There are companies in Spain or Germany specialized.
