Hi can I just enquire when did you visit this zoo? We are due to go their in August and my son is desperate to see the polar bear? how many polar bears do they have?
Good afternoon. August is a good time to be at the zoo. The weather helps if you don´t mind the slight cold climate. It is actually fun and not hot and sticy. Here is a video from youtube about the polar bear hope this helps. The is pretty good, you will enjoy it also try the funicular ride as well. Your son would love seeing the trees under his feet and riding... I hope you enjoy your trip, have fun. I totally forgot to suggest a place where a kid can just be a kid but also have a 100% fun time: It is called Kidzania. I hope this information helps. There is also a live selvatic place where you can see other animals it is called Selva Viva. I am sending the site for this too.
Here is the polar bear site

Hi, we were in Santiago at the end of May. There was only one Polar Bear and it seemed a bit dirty and sad, however the Zoo is a pleasant place to spend the day and the price is reasonable.
Hi, I went to Chile in February, high summer. As you are going in the winter you probably will have better chances to see it. I think you should check the zoo's website to make sure the polar bear attraction will be open because it wasn't on my visit... There is only one polar bear as far as I know and I only could see him through a stained glass door... But there are many other good attractions to see there and it's a nice way to spend the day... Enjoy your vacation!
