  • There are several animals that need to have more space (monkeys, cats, etc). In general I like not so much visit you make.

  • It was not a good while ago. It was Saturday and arrived in family with my two kids (5 and 2 years old), very late for my taste (at noon). It is a beach of very big parking, so there were no problems, several boxes were that queue there is no. The infrastructure of the Park has improved a lot. Have expanded them stays of them animals, which is very but very good for them (within it wrong that can be be locked up, but if not were so, never them would see and learn, in end). The mine, green, beautiful and very curious animals, several bridges, lagoons, classic suspension bridge, Aquarium, etc. All very nice and well arranged. The mine with its lift and sea lions captured my children, that paid everything so simple. Areas for improvement: signage, complicated to go from one place to another if you are looking for a specific site. The games inflatable should be improved as is a good site for them children play and them potatoes is relax a little. More information of those animals would help to teach and if was something multimedia best... I recommend you go early, not only because there are fewer people, but because animals are most active between 9 and 11... and are they appreciated best... Young children like mine appreciated parks, games, sea lions, the Monkey Island... the cats, per hour, all asleep. A good site to a good price, without exit of Lima. Hopefully follow improving and think in the youth that need more multimedia and more dynamism to capture their attention...

  • Almost every year I visit the Parque de las Leyendas, for one reason or another. I believe that it has improved in some areas for some animals; However, they require conservation and greater care of the animals. What I ask is that be more careful of the SSHH there, as well as improve services for the boat ride (all jackets were very dirty), and food offer. The Park should have dealers that offer meals typical of the Peru but of quality, and not allow that is hacienden so many people selling food scrap or products (toys and souvenirs) that are of very bad quality.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Very Informative and Entertaining
  • 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.
  • 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.
