Great for kids but when you've seen the San Diego zoo, well............. what can I say. It is good for kids and to know what animals come from there and other countries. I will put it up one more notch to very good..

It's not big, especially if you're used to some of the huge zoos near a major metropolis, but it's something to do with your SO or kids if you're in Barranquilla. The staff were helpful showing/explaining things when asked.

It is very good here and it is easy to get great photos of the birds and animals. Never seen so many flamingos in one place. Situated on level ground, so it is good for people with walking difficulties
