Parque Zoologico Huachipa, Lima

2.9
#7 of 16 in Zoos & Aquariums in Peru
Parque Zoologico Huachipa takes a more hand-on and close-up approach to animal observation. Explore the zoo's petting workshops for sheep, camels, and vicunas, and enjoy close interaction with a variety of big cats--including the increasingly rare white tiger--separated by reinforced glass. Pay special attention to the extensive and informative aviary and section dedicated to the Amazon rainforest. Because of the zoo's location a fair distance from most touristy spots, consider taking a taxi here, unless you're familiar with the area.

    There were children that day, but not overly crowded so it was nice, almost empty when I went when it first opened. It just finished raining as well so everything was nice and fresh. The Zoo is mostly...  more »

    The Zoo is an hour from lima access is difficult since the streets are busy I recommend using app waze to come. Spacious parking. While it is true some spaces were not animals, others were well care it seems to me that they are in process of improvement. The Aquarium is nice is the most salvageable of the visit, there are quite a few games for kids all of additional payment. It is also good to note the route entry already what shows and activities schedule and specific area. Note that the input can only pay in cash cards are not accepted and there are no ATMs close (15 soles per person).

    Definitely a very bad ratio, they offer very little for what charge, compared to the Parque de las Leyendas, this last passes it over in every aspect.

    They need to take care of the animals in there they also need cleaner bathrooms but after all it's a good place for kids the animals are great only animals that you will see in PERU

    A family friendly zoo with a various species of animals. There are some really cool animals which are seen only in PERU. The zoo is over crowded with people during holidays. I am not happy with animal enclosures, because they are quite small for the animals. The zoo needs more attention about cleanliness, animal care. The zoo needs some improvements in many areas. I enjoyed the conceptual exhibits in the zoo. overall It's a good place to spend your time with kids and family.

Where to stay in Lima

One of Peru's most expensive destinations, Lima offers accommodations that range from modern hotel high-rises to family-run guesthouses. Most visitors stay in Barranco, Miraflores, or San Isidro, three of the city's safest and prettiest neighborhoods, which offer a good selection of budget lodgings. For something truly authentic, look for hotels located in restored mansions, many of which offer pleasant rooms overlooking manicured enclosed gardens, ideal for enjoying romantic meals or hosting small private parties.
