This is a staple in E Valle. Always something new to see. Great place to take children. The scenery is beautiful and the frog exhibit is awesome.

We enjoyed being up and close to the birds and animals...the trails are well marked and the creatures are identified in multi-lanuages. Great place for children to see monkeys etc

I really don't think the animals are saved then let go into the wild again. I actually felt sad for the Jaguars and Monkeys. The separate building where they are trying to preserve... More

Although the zoo is mostly typical, it does have a separate building devoted to frogs, of which they are trying to conserve. There were a number of species represented. Since our last visit three years ago we noted there were less species and a general decline. The botanical garden was just average, and the orchid house could only be viewed... More

Worth 5 dollars and we saw loads of wild animals. All looked to be in good condition and happy. Don't miss the jaguars

This zoo is supposed to be a "clinic" for animals but does have a lot of animals from all over the world. They all are living in very bad condition with very small fences and not really clean... We did not pay a lot but got regrets to have them money. There is definitely better activities in El Valle !

This isn't like traveling to a zoo in the USA, but it has some really interesting animals. Definitely buy the back of corn when you pay for your tickets. Most all of the animals like them and get excited when you give them food. Even the pigs! The monkeys are adorable and don't want to be left out, but they... More
