I don't want to support zoos because they happen to have too small cages, bad circumstances for the animals and many other problems very often. I thought this place is different from the description of the studying center and tale of nursering sick animals and...More

Important work to save the critically endangered Golden Frog and other frogs is being done here. We visited the zoo specifically to see the Golden Frog and learn more about them. Frogs are displayed in a small building but there is little information presented on...More

My heart broke to see the animals in cages that were too small for them. I don't imagine that anywhere in North America or Europe this kind of zoo would be allowed to function. The animals didn't seem to be in particular distress but to...More

Some organisation like PETA etc needs to rally to have this place closed down. How anyone who has the slightest interest in animal welfare can rate this place and its conditions as anything but cruel and disgusting is beyond me. Endagered animals like spider monkies...More

This "zoo" is set in the middle of a beautiful tropical rain forest!! It's a must see just for the setting. However I do share some concerns for the animals as i'm not sure they are receiving the best care. If you don't go to...More

This is a small zoo with not so many animals but it is beautifully landscaped and the frog display is quite impressive.
