  • It is a nice Park, roomy and comfortable to go to spend the day with family. The income is very cheap and inside there are large sectors with barbecues and site to play and run. With respect to the Zoo, could be improved. Mostly I emphasize that there is no posters against the stay of each animal. There are posters only in some points of the road indicating which animals there are on that road but arriving against an animal one does not know well which of the poster faces and even if you know it, only know the name. It would be very good that they placed posters with information about each species, as there are in general in all the zoos in the world. The guided tour of the native forest has been comment aside: is excellent.

  • Nice zoo
  • It is ideal to spend the day with family or friends. There are grills and restrooms clean y.cuidados. Animals are well looked after and have pens with ample spaces to inhabit. There is a hostel with truth of products and affordable prices. There are forested areas that protect from the Sun. As against, I would say that it is far to go by bus with all the loading of bags and packages...

  • The Park is very nice and is in general good care. Take into account that the schedule is from 9 to 18 H, so it is advisable to go early so you can enjoy it. Recommend go by car if possible.
