  • 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.
