Observe the resident animals at close range through daily feeding programs. Travel through the world’s ecosystems by visiting specially-designed habitats including the Tropical Garden, the Quaternary Park, and the Aquaterrium. Grab a bite to eat at the zoo’s cafe, also serving Spanish paella, or bring your own lunch to eat in the picnic area.

  • The truth is that we went without having created high expectations but we were surprised, there are a lot of very original animals, endangered species, the butterfly one last and it is advisable to make a booklet of discount, usually you have at all the hotels and restaurants in the area, lowering the price of the entrance and the menu, and also made a gift to the kids. The girl who attended us in the restaurant a charm. We liked it very much. Highly recommended.

  • It is a zoo in which, closely watching the animals and children enjoy more, many species of animals, and a special place to see butterflies of all colors.

  • Too expensive to spend a family day, a 18/20 euros per head. No doubt very expensive if it would have been more economical insurance we would have gone. But it was not so
