It's not big, especially if you're used to some of the huge zoos near a major metropolis, but it's something to do with your SO or kids if you're in Barranquilla. The staff were helpful showing/explaining things when asked.

It is very good here and it is easy to get great photos of the birds and animals. Never seen so many flamingos in one place. Situated on level ground, so it is good for people with walking difficulties

I went to the Barranquilla Zoo with my wife and our son. It was enjoyable. Lots of animals to see and LOTS of different types of monkeys. The cost was only 11k pesos for each adult and child. Well worth it to spend two hours visiting this place. They have ice cream for sale and other food and drinks,.

It is the closest zoo to Cartagena and Santa Marta and i believe it is the only zoo in the region. and it does not disappoint, it has a great variety of animals and there is plenty of places to buy snacks. I specially enjoyed the "dark room" where they keep reptiles and specialty creatures.

This is not a big zoo, but they have everything you would expect in a zoo (animalwise). They do animalshows, and there is a cage where you can feed the birds. You can also feed some of the other animals. Eventhough it's small, it's layed out in a way that makes it look bigger. The setting is very nice (tropical... More
