  • An excellent family ride, zoo to spend the day, excellent bathroom structure, food and picnic venues. Free and paid presentations. Simply unmissable

  • An ordinary menu, with poorly prepared meat and puree mixed with the bag, unflavored desserts and unvaried salads. If you want to go, bring something to share as a family.

  • Very nice zoo, they have interactive sections as well. Can go on train from Central station (estacion central). Highly recommend sunscreen.
  • The best Zoo to go to if you're in Santiago. The exhibits are large and they clearly respect and care for the animals unlike others zoo's such as the one in Cerro San Cristóbal. They have great places to eat, and the whole experience is very memorable!
