The zoo is not exactly what Europeans would be expecting, which I think is the reason for some of the more negative reviews. It is home mainly to native species of the Andes, with non the ‘big ticket’ animals you would be accustomed to seeing...More

This was a nice pit stop on the way back to our campsite after the valle de luna but I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see it.

The zoo in La Paz is at 30 minutes away from the downtown. It's no so big but there is an bbq area ideal for spending time with the family and/or friends.

A nice one-day, or half day excursion from La Paz also with children's. You can find games for children's in the zoo. The whole area is arranged to receive visitors also for lunch especially weekend and public holidays
