  • This is my favourite aquarium I've gone to. It's got a wide variety of fish, coral, and other such wildlife. The tanks are large, well looked after and with lots of variation in habitat. There's boards talking about the contents of each tank and stages for talks when it's busier. Beautiful place!
  • It's a smaller ZOO that can't compare with the best (like Prague ZOO for example), but it's decent and definitely not a disappointment. Some descriptions are missing and some displays are old, unattractive and kinda sad for the animals to live in, but others are pretty nice. I could see a lot of good work done in the past years there. Off season you should expect most of the restaurants and other attractions to be closed.
  • This is a world class zoo with an amazing range of animals with large, interesting enclosures and great information. Get there early for the exhibitions/shows which are all free once you're in, and the animals are very well trained and look healthy and happy. I took my family and absolutely loved it. It's an absolute steal at €20pp - so check it out before they realise they could comfortably be charging double that.
  • Great and really large zoo and aquarium to visit while you are in Madrid. Lots of different and unique species from all corners of the world. The aquarium was a nice touch as well and the shows were a cool extra. In the morning it was really quiet and you can explore the zoo at your own time, ticket prices were okay.
  • Very nice day out. Great mix of animals. The baby pandas were exceptional. Gift prices far too expensive. Dolphin show was fantastic. Great photos afterwards. Nice to be able to buy a beer inside.
