Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was a very hot walk around but u got to see all the birds and animals of Panama, and lovely plants and flowers. Interesting place but was hoping for more butterflies. Make sure u bring bands for the birds and signs everywhere , do not feed the monkeys but people did.🤪

Great zoo working to take care of needy animals/birds....and the fact that they operate a "greenhouse" of sorts (to purchase plants) once you enter is a great idea. Saw a lot of Panama natives.

Not a very extensive zoo but keep in mind the animals and birds are mostly rescues. We spent about 90 minutes there. Yes, cages are small but the displays are clean and look well tended. Just a warning…if you take a taxi, ask him to return as taxis in El Valle are very limited. A big gracias to the lovely couple who gave us a ride back to the market.

The big beautiful flowers and trees was very cool.
There were only a few animals and they were in cages not natural settings.
It was interesting to see the volcanic rocks and landscape.

I was extremely disturbed after visiting. The coyotes, pigs, large birds and jaguars were the worst. Pacing with dead eyes in disgusting conditions. This place should rethink their purpose and set free or put down these beautiful but trapped creatures.

I went to this zoo/ animal sanctuary with my husband and our 11 year old. We enjoyed it a lot and was pleasantly surprised with how large it was and the number of animals that were there. Every time we thought we were finished there was another section. It was sometimes challenging to figure out where to go next, but we made it through. Hopefully we didn’t skip any animals. The enclosures and the zoo itself were very clean. The scenery was absolutely beautiful! The prices were great. For 3 of us it was less than half the cost of one ticket at our local zoo. We were happy to support an animal sanctuary.

It’s a group of disparate animals in mainly old antiquated cages, the exception being the Spider monkeys. There’s no attempt at education or conservation and the bigger mammals just pace relentlessly. Bizarrely there’s a large chicken section and the eggs are on sale at reception. There’s also a large plants for sale section.

If you want to do some good then go and see Jasón at the Square Trees Nature trail who has a few Golden Frogs and a desire to preserve them.

Golden frogs were supposed to he here but ha e move to another facility in town (ask your concierge for details of new location). The zoo is mostly birds and run down. Needs lots of work.
