  • They make the best thing that can be with what they have, to the extent back have several localsitos that sell food and drink, a good choice of variety.

  • Excellent option to visit and learn about the fauna of the planet, will find you after a short and pleasant walk by a small Boulevard which leads to the Museum square. I loved animals from Africa, especially the huge giraffe. I recommend it because leaving you have on one side the Museum of fine arts and the Los Caobos Park with its beautiful green areas and the impressive source Venezuela.
