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.

  • I really enjoyed venturing through this park. There’s many different species here but they have large, caged environments (which is great) but it’s difficult to see everything. The park is easy to navigate. Expect to spend up to an hour here. This park supports the conservation of wildlife in Costa Rica, which is hugely important so please take some time to visit!

  • Zoo Ave a nice zoo that is good for the full family. The zoo is a nice size and makes for a nice half-day trip if you're in the area. There is a great selection of animals here including monkeys, birds, reptiles, and lots more. Zoo Ave is definitely worth checking out for any animal fans.

  • Good price and beautiful place. The most important thing is the fact that they are not a zoo, but a rescue center. They have great numbers of animals reintroduced to the wild.

  • Great place if you love birds. They also have crocodiles, caimans, various species of monkeys, peccaries, a tapir, a kinkaju (sp?), tortoises, turtles, sloth and probably a couple others that I am forgetting. The animals are rescued and those that can be rehabilitated are released back into the wild. The cages are generally large and the animals look well cared for. The entry fee is very reasonable - we paid 12,000 colones for 2 adults and one child. It stroller friendly and there are bathrooms and a couple of food options.

  • Perfect place to experience the pure beauty of costa rica and it’s wild life. The nature is unbelievably amazing and it’s kid friendly. The animals interact with u and are exited to see u witch I have never seen before! U can also pay a small addition Cost to go zip lining across and around the zoo with animals by your side. I would give it a 5 star but it does have a small lack of animals and could have a bit more, other then that it’s a great place to visit.
