  • Years ago it was not visiting Park and yesterday we went to spend the day with friends. The truth is a very good choice for a quiet Sunday, we arrived early and we had no problem finding a barbecue with abundant shade since we went with young children. The bathrooms in good condition, with staff who would clean them regularly. Didn't do much visiting animals rather than monkeys and zebras because the Sun was very strong but we love the place to spend the day. The entrance is economical and you see the value of what you pay in the State in which this park. Not found dirt, the bathrooms are in good condition and the grills also. It is $80 per car and $20 per adult less driver. For example we were 4 adults and 1 child. Child not pay and the total was $140.-

  • If the idea is to see many animals not I recommend it. There are about 20 species, most common and usual in zoos. But the good thing is that these animals are in good condition, care and very wide areas. An economic entry is paid, there is a small bar to eat and is traversed by car (you can also download, there are steakhouses and places for children)

  • good my opinion is that it is a very well maintained place to stroll in family. The bus drops you off about 500 meters and the place is big so you have to be willing to walk. not miss the view of the lagoon. It has racks and a place to eat patys, drink something cold and ice cream. It is economical and highly recommended.

  • Awesome exhibits, and great place to see local animals as a tourist, on top of a collection of more exotic animals.
  • Lovely place for a weekend picnic. Not much far from Montevideo. Plenty of Bus options you can avail from any corner of the city, but best option is to grab a bus from Tres Cruces Shopping. Takes you around 1:5 hours to reach along Ruta 1 and another 10 mins walk before you reach entrance gate. There generally is a nominal entry fee 20 pesos per person but we were lucky that day we visited and no entry fee was required for the day as the lady at the gate informed us. You will find plenty of open spots with Parilla places and cemented bench and tables for your perfect weekend picnic. Vast land acquired by the zoo, but not many animals to find. Sometimes you can see llamas roaming around in public if you are lucky. I was not interested in that but my wife was super excited. Over all, it's a pretty good getaway place if you are looking for a one day relaxation not too far from the city.
