I went to GDL zoo by accident. I was on my way to Selva Magica but ended up there instead, but it certainly did not disappoint. The zoo offers 'Sky zoo' and 'tram rides' which are worth the ride. The sky zoo brings visitors above the animals allowing them to get really close, while the tram unlike in other zoos... More

This place is one of the most beautiful zoos in Latin America, they have many species and they take good care of the animals. If you want to know the entire zoo in one day you must take the sky zoo and the train. The diamond pass is the best way to see everything easily and cheap.

Always love the zoo and especiially the GDL zoo . I recommend an afternoon here or just to kill a few hours. There is a small amusement park next door which is great to amuse the kids after the zoo. Plenty to do for the whole family

If you like zoos, this is a must see. I recommend splurging for the pass that gives you access to the sky train which is a ski lift that takes you round trip above the zoo. Gives you a good overall view plus a brief view of the barranca that borders the zoo's edge. We took the bus from the... More

We started by taking a ski lift over the zoo. Awesome. We also went on the safari tour and were taken into the rhino's area and the giraffes where we got to feed the giraffes. There weren't any fences separating us from the animals. Afterward, we went into one of the monkey's areas where the monkeys climbed all over you.... More

Hello everybody 😊 i recommend that you spend a few hours on visiting this place. The park is very interesting! The best way to see it is to go early and to buy all inclusive ticket. That way you will not be in a rush and will be able to see everything. I recommend that you start from skyzoo (chair... More
