  • If finished with the bad smell that there is in the zoo would be more pleasant our visit. However, being in the Parque de las Leyendas is enjoy to remember childhood.

  • 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.
