Zoo Ave, Alajuela Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice smaller sized zoo. You can do a nice paced walk through in about 2 to 2 1/2 hours. They have zipplining (canopy) rides for about $24 USD.

  • This is the best zoo in Costa Rica. There are lots of animals, mostly Birds, all kept in as natural a habitat as possible. Lots of information both in English and in Spanish. There are food and drink both available in the park. The best time to go is as early in the morning as possible. During the dry season, because of the Heat and in the wet season, because of the chance of rain later in the day. We spent an entire morning there and enjoyed it immensely.

  • Wonderful place , too good to be a zoo , it's actually more like an animal rescue center , I can see they took good care of the animals because of the condition of the place . The restaurant is also good, there are peacocks come to you for food when you are eating 😂😂

  • Really nice observatory of different species of birds. After the nice walk and seeing different animals there's also a great restaurant to go to. Food was delicious and great customer service.

  • We loved getting to experience this zoo/animal rehabilitation center. I went with my almost-3 year old and my 2 month old. There were roaming peacocks and lizards, extensive trails to explore, and almost no one else in sight (we went as soon as it opened). Great for families. Delicious ice cream. Plenty of spots to sit for a rest.
