  • I loved the Park, it is beautiful and very clean... most of the animals are in good condition, however, the animals of the forest sector note lack of space for them.

  • Is far from Miraflores, but Val and worth going. It's a really big Park, so go prepared for more hours, especially if you have children. The animals seem to me to be well treated. Has museums and other leisure options within. Take water, sunscreen and something to eat if you don't want to rely on snack kiosks or the restaurants of typical food. One of the largest zoos I've ever met.

  • Perfect for a family outing, but not surprised at the amount of people who visit it, so take care of young children. There are many animals of different regions of the Peru you can enjoy.

  • A local zoological area and park located in San Miguel, well maintained and fun for the family. Please do not expect a "world-class" experience, but do expect to see animals kept carefully in habitats that allow for viewing. It is a nostalgic and treasured part of San Miguel and receives thousands of visitors year-round.
  • Very nice and quiet place to take a walk with family. I recommend not to miss the hippopotamus and bull places. Some of them are playing or swimming. Very funny.
  • This is an amazing zoo. It is very beautiful and huge too. I love the infrastructures and the fact that if you bring your children they have a wide variety of activities to keep them occupied. Their are numerous of animals that I have never seen before. I was indeed surprised. I am from Jamaica and I really love the work you all have put into this zoo. Keep up the good work!
  • Good option to spent the day with your kids. To improve: limited options to buy water and snacks, maintenance of some areas and they didn't give me a guide at entrance. The best: rare black jaguars in excelent condition
  • Nice place to go with the family. If you have kids take a stroller!! It can be tiresome.
