  • Beautiful zoo with sooo many animals . Its a huge place that would easily take 3-4 hours to see properly . Some of the enclosures need to be updated but generally a great day out .
  • Cuenta la leyenda en un parque limeño ....after the surprise, still awake in the middle of fall of my bed, seeing as it was in the middle of a square Roman circus, and suddenly before I realized I could flow between the streets of a modern city made of glass, while walking I thought have wings and I started flying and since the sky I could see that the city of glass were the eyes of a sleeping giant in the middle of a bigger jungle giant and approaching dangerously sun skimming across the dark sky, I could feel with one foot on a flag, making balance not to fall, fall without grace, that same cai as driven by a trampoline and was caught in the air by the trunk of an elephant exibio me by the beaches as a toy, and I felt small and useless until that elephant was the toy of a girl who saw the sea from a peñazco took the elephant as a toy and I take as her boyfriend, so when she was great I also grew up next to her, she is my blonde doll with blue eyes and I am his luis
  • This zoo will always bring good memories. Unfortunately, it needs better facilities. I guess the budget is limited. Good value for money. Entry is about £3 ($4) or less for students, children, over 60s
  • Pretty big zoo, with a lot of exotic animal. I recommend it
  • A big park with lots of animals. Great for a day out. Bring sun block, in the park you can by food and snacks.
