This was an interesting way to be able to view animals from this region in a natural setting and was especially interesting in that they were rescued animals.

A short boat ride from Flores and great for a 1-2 hour outing. All of the animals have been rescued and are being rehabilitated. Not a lot of signage or interpretation, but all the animals are happy and well taken care of.

This zoo was perhaps once much grander, I can't be sure. I say it has potential, for if someone put time and money into managing these forlorn animals and their environment better, it would be a wonderful sanctuary. The beasts seem fairly comfortable (when you see them), but their environment is not natural or even much of a simulation of their natural environment. I think they need more space to roam about. Still, it's always nice to see wild animals, even if they're not really wild any more.

I am concerned about the quality of care in many zoos, but the animals here seemed well-cared for and content. The many interesting critters from Central America were certainly worth a visit. Start on the little island, then cross the pontoon bridge to the larger part of the zoo. You can grab a launch for around Q200 at many points on Flores or Sta Elaina.
