  • It is a huge Zoo which offers 3 types of zones: forest, sea and mountains. In each are animals that belong to that area. We were a Friday morning. He was full of children from schools, all with guides screaming, some with speakers. The Park is dirty, no one controls anything. This well signposted and the recommendations are by all sides but nobody respects them, for example do not give food to animals or not golepar cages (in case of monkeys or Pumas) glasses. The fish are in a lagoon that have nylon bags to packages of cookies, not counting food scraps that throw you to eat. Is a penalty because this well intended but you lack control and management. You can eat there but sincerely sites are not the best, at least they do not provide a good image of the kitchen or where they have food. As for the animals, he gave us a little sorry some. While it is a Zoo, and we know that they are locked up, we thought in places more adapted or large. Maybe this perception is because in Argentina already changed a little the vision regarding these sites.

  • A Zoo and Botanical Garden. A pleasant place to stroll. The impressive felinario, also a lion cub had been born not long ago, and see him play was a joy.

  • Looking better. Unfortunately, people do not use the garbage bins to dispose of the plastics, bottles etc. People do not respect the signage in which it says do not disturb the animals. There's a need for guards to patrol the different enclosures to make sure people respect and obey. Some animals should be living in pairs or groups. It was quite sad to see a lion without a companion or some primates alone.
  • The exhibist were nicer than the last time I went there a couple years ago. They have a train ride, horse carriage ride and a small amusement park. You have to pay an extra fee to be able to use all of them. They also have several kioskos, restaurants and a small botanical garden. They also have s small lake with rides and a "huaca" (pre inca construction). The only down coment is that they have less animals and no elephants, but overall it's a nice place to visit with the family.
  • Not bad. Pretty big zoo, but some of the animals look quite unhappy.. Unfortunately our visit was ruined because someone stole the wallet right out of my purse.
  • If you're looking for a space to get away, specially in Lima where it can be hard to find great parks, I recommend this one it doubles as a zoo, cheap prices and its an all day event with some friends. Check it out.
  • Good place
