A original zoo with a great beach. The best part i like was the pink dolphin show. My friend and me happened a cool sunny day.

Nice zoo, but small cages. The lake and the beach are really nice for a short swim. The food in the restaurant at the beach is nothing special.

The simple zoo has a nice beach and the staff are approachable to give insight into the animals. The entrance fee is quite reasonable if a local buys the tickets.

A place where you can go to relax. A nice artifitial beach and a wonderful lagoon you can swim in. I do not like seeing animals in cages. They need more care

I think more people go here for the beach... Not much was at the zoo anymore, especially that you can't see at the common rehabilitation centers. Capybara was the one thing we were happy to see. I understand there not being dolphins anymore, although I'd...More
