(3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
See a zoo built around ruins and observe animals from around the world at Parque de las Leyendas (Zoo). The large zoo encompasses three environments: coast, mountain, and jungle. While the number of animals may be few and far between, you can expect to see exotic creatures like jaguars, condors, and tapirs. Also explore the ruins from an ancient pre-Incan city of Marangacan up cloase. Bring your own water and sunscreen. Restaurants surround the zoo, so a quick step outside can get you a meal.

  • Ideal for families, educate the children and see the diversity of wildlife that we have in our country. It is important to wear hat, sunscreen, and obvious camera.

  • Must-see for preference day weekend since the saturdau and Sundays there are too many people. They must wear comfortable shoes.

  • 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.
