One of the saddest things I ever seen. I guess it’s not even just this zoo but the animals seemed very sad and lifeless. There aren’t that many animal options

Within a short walk I found myself at the city zoo. Good value with plenty of shade trees and an easy walk to see the exhibits. Many local animals that I have never seen before with many locals also enjoying the sights. Visit early morning...More

Good zoo but for sure needs to expand the facilities. Way too small of space for the elephants and the ostrich. Spend 2 hrs and price seem reasonable bring your cédula and it will be cheaper.

The lion and the elephant are in such small enclosures. The puma too. Some unique animals endemic to Colombia. I hate to say that there is an advantage to such small cages. Young kids can easily walk around the whole zoo in the heat.

It's small but has interesting animals. They sell nice empanadas in the back of the zoo. Make sure to apply mosquito repellent because it's ideal that you will get bit.
