Zoo Ave - Review

Located a little way off from Alajuela, the Zoo Ave is worth the drive. One of the best things about Zoo Ave is that the ticket proceeds go towards the rehabilitation of the premises and its inhabitants.Visited mostly for the zoo’s impressive repertoire of over 100 species of birds, enjoying the marvelous space of 14 hectares that’s been allotted to them.

In addition to the impressive aviary, the Zoo Ave is home to all four Costa Rican monkeys, wild cats and reptiles to name a few. The best zoo of the country has a program that focuses on animal breeding to keep up the numbers of the native animals of Costa Rica.

Zoo Ave, Alajuela Reviews

  • Come and support a good cause!!!! I absolutely loved how they had informative signs all over the place about the animal as well as calls to action. The staff was very friendly and it’s big enough to see a little bit of everything and small enough to take a few hours out of your day to check it out. If you’re in Costa Rica, I would strongly recommend this place. Super family friendly and just a bus ride away from San Jose (about 45 minutes with a connection

  • Great variety of animals and delicious food at the on site restaurant, Cafe David. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We got to see Gracias, the toucan with the prosthetic beak, as promised in the advertisement. Definitely recommend.

  • Zoo Ave is a great place to walk and see many birds, reptiles, monkeys, and others. There's a restaurant, a small souvenir's shop and a 3 cables zip Line tour. It's clean, free parking (please tip the security guard ) and affordable entrance fee. The staff members are friendly and professional. The iguanas are HUGE and they roam free. Allocate at least 3 hrs to visit Zoo Ave. You'll see more birds here than at any private bird watching tour!

  • The staff in the cafeteria goes above and beyond in their service. I especially enjoyed their passionfruit cheesecake with their coffee! The waiter warned that their peacocks are know to try and steal a bite.

  • Such a different experience than most zoos. We really enjoyed seeing the animals in a more natural state. The ziplining was fun too!
