It was not worth the money paid. I will not recommend visitors to come to the Jamaica zoo. Not impressed with the service and the place is in need of repair.

Could use a little TLC however the tour was great and they kept the kids (8,10,12) well entertained for a few hours! Awesome tour guides. Very good for families with small children. 1.5hr drive from MoBay. Would visit again.
