We decided to visit the zoo with our one year old daughter and we were really disappointed. The zoo is not well taken care of and the animals are put in such tight spaces there is no room for them to run, play or fly. You can tell they aren't taken care of well, their fur and feathers are matted... More

The Zoo was difficult to find even with a GPS. The best part was that it is FREE! There are some empty cages and most enclosures are not up-to-date with zoo current standards. There was a fair amount or native wildlife as well as some animals from Africa.

Very nice large zoo. It could use a renovation, but otherwise it was pretty nice. Lots of animals and native Brazilian birds to see. No gift shops or food stands on the inside and the road going to the Curitiba Zoo is a little sketchy. Great place to go for ecoturists.

Nice place to spend half a day. It's very well spread out and a very large public zoo. Entry is now free and we had a great day there with the family. There are quite a few animals which is quite rare for a public, free zoo. A variety of monkeys, birds and cats were probably the highlight. The hippo... More

Very nice zoo, too bad there was only one zebra there. The road leading there is terrible. A huge park, be prepared to walk a lot!

Zoo Curitiba is located in the southern region of the city, and has animals from all parts of the world in its fauna.Unfortunately this Zoo needs to be renewed. I think a visit to this zoo is not worth it. Excepting if you really like seeing animals...

The zoo is a bit out of town on a reserve of sorts. Most of the animals have lots of space to roam around, and it feels more like a park than a zoo. There are ponds and animals living in as natural habitats possible for a zoo.

I drove to this place and the roads to this place were the worst I have seen! Huge potholes. I came in the back way also which may have been worse but left the other way and it was just as bad. They were fixing the holes on the way out and my wife said they were getting ready for... More

This is a very large zoo... kids may get tired of walking... so be prepare to do stops on the way... there is snacks available and water... you will needed. The place is well maintain and is a great option to visit any de day of the week... be prepare for lines and full parking lot during the weekend.
