Big zoo with a great atmosphere and environment, it has lot of free events during the day like reptile, bird & dolphin presentations. Also has places to eat proper food and. The animals seem cared of.

Ride the Teleferico first to get a fantastic view over the whole zoo. Then walk. And then do the same again to make sure you didn't miss something you wanted to see.

Unusual to have such a big zoo in the middle of the city, this also means it cannot spread any further, but still they manage to offer quite some space to the animals. Nicely kept, to be recommended.

Fantástico! Além de inúmeras espécies para visitar tem os shows! O dos golfinhos é imperdível! A grande vantagem é dos recintos ser super próximos um ao outro, o que torna a visita super agradável!

Já visitei muitos jardins zoológicos mas sem dúvida que este é o meu favorito. Recomendo a visita a toda a gente. Animais muito bem tratados e imensas actividades para todas as idades.

Прекрасный зоопарк! Заранее посмотрите расписание представления дельфинов и когда кормят животных, это достаточно интересно, но не 100% must-see. Но обязательно прокатитесь на канатной дороге над зоо!
