i have not been there yet but i am also visiting there with my children in November. I have read on old posts & other message boards that this zoo is really nice. I saw pics that someone posted but cant remember where. Anyway, the animals were so close but it is like you are in the cages & they are wild (but not really) There were lots of jaguars & other animals that we really dont see in the zoos in the US. I have never seen a post where the person did not care for it.
