  • What a great place to bring young children to see wildlife in well designed settings. Animals seem to be well cared for. Kids enjoyed the marine show with two penguins and two sea lions...  more »
  • Not what i was expecting, was dirty, run down displays, workers not friendly and spraying and waisting water on the dead grass in the middle of a very hot afternoon? And a voice over the speakers...  more »
  • Very nice zoo, they have interactive sections as well. Can go on train from Central station (estacion central). Highly recommend sunscreen.
  • The best Zoo to go to if you're in Santiago. The exhibits are large and they clearly respect and care for the animals unlike others zoo's such as the one in Cerro San Cristóbal. They have great places to eat, and the whole experience is very memorable!
