    It is the largest and most important of Venezuela with an animal collection of the 5 continents. There are attractions for young and old, places to eat, canopi or zip line and other attractions. In the heart of Barquisimeto is the most important vegetable lung of the city.

    I went to the Zoo with much expectation, but is disappointed because although it is big and there are animals that do not exist in other zoos in venezuela as Tiger of Bengal and hippos, are very carelessness, the site itself it seems full of mountain terrain and old animals and ill-fated, of truth that is forgotten somewhere in that city So sad

    Nice place to share with children in the House. I think that you can be in a better position, but it not left to make it a pleasant and attractive place. Easy access and centrally located.

    It is a very nice Park but need more help from the State and include more animals and repair what has been damaged, the Park is presenting a series of structural, economic problems and care that put at risk the lives of the animals, its good performance and attention afforded to visitors.
