Came here to have a look to the animals they have here. It is a nice place to get in touch (almost) with nature. Tour guides give a nice explanation and make you feel part of the attraction.

The zoo is a must see for young and old. The monkeys and the iguanas roam around free. The snakes where sun bathing so we were able to touch them risk free. What a unique experience. The children loved it !

The zoo is small. You can see the whole thing in under two hours. On the plus side you're closer to the animals that in other zoos. I felt bad for the elephant that was in solitary confinement. Elephants are social. Must be tough for...More

Some locals discouraged us from visiting the zoo but we enjoyed it. It has many Colombian native animals. The exhibit space is a bit small but the place is generally clean and well run.

I was the last month with my family. Perhaps the zoo is small, it has a good quantity of animals. My daughter was happy and she enjoy the farm, and the lions.

Really nice place to spend time and know more about nature and everything, try to visit early becouse the temperature in Barranquilla is quite high and you will not enjoy the visit as you must
