Spring Vacation - Afternoon at the Zoon

Children enjoyed the day at the zoo. Not as large as our zoos in the United States (referring to the Bronx Zoo and San Diego Zoo) but still a nice afternoon with the children.

While I'm not a zoo person my boys loved it and did ask to go back the next day. The price is great and it has all the same animals as any big American or European zoo. The staff are friendly and easy to talk with.

Did this a few times with my nieces and nephews. Its a nice way for the kids to bond and also great for a day trip. It's relaxing and the animals are all so adorable. I would recommend this to families who need a day out. Take a trip to the zoo and enjoy the scenery.

Went here to visit the newly added animals to the animal family. Saw the new giraffes as well as the new warthog. This place has really transformed from the place I knew as a child. Looking forward to seeing the new improvements with the installation of the new tigers and tiger case

Upon visiting Trinidad we were intrigued to visit their zoo to see the new addition of the baby tigers. Fascinating to see all of the tigers, parents and cubs. The zoo is clean, well maintained, easy trails to follow interesting presentation of a collection of Caribbean animals, reptiles and beautiful selection of birds. Kids would appreciate this site as much... More

The recent upgrades and addition of new exhibits makes this a good place to spend a day. However, the concessions are poor with very limited and unhealthy choices in an untidy environment. Very limited seating for diners, and bad smells all around. Still an axciting place for kids though.

We visit this zoo every time we come to Trinidad. This time we have seen some very nice improvements to the zoo. It's not the biggest zoo, but that's one of the reasons we like it so much. A couple of new exhibits to the zoo are some white tigers, which are housed in a brand new enclosure, and they... More

My visit to the zoo was quite a nice one. We went on a Sunday afternoon after church and it was quite busy which came to me as a surprise. I haven't been to the zoo in possibly a year or two so I found new sections of the zoo were great, the gift shop is a good way to... More
