Default New Zoo on St Maarten

We heard there is a new zoo on St Maarten and want to take the family. Has anyone been to it? Can we take a taxi from the ship? How far is it. It's not listed as an excursion on our ship (Independence - 2/7/09)

First I've heard of a zoo in St. Maarten. Hopefully, by the time you go, someone that visits these boards will have been there.

I have found their web site but can't seem to pin point a map to it so we can find out the distance to see if a cab ride is workable..

Let's see what we have here. Here is the e-mail address of the zoo sxmzoo@MEGATROPIC.com could try e-mailing the zoo directly.
Here are some reviews.

Here is a map:

The zoo is the other side of the Great Salt Pond from the capital of Dutch St Maarten, Philipsburg.

I found it. This is from an article on the zoo.
http://emerginghorizons.com/topical/caribZoo.html
The St. Maarten Zoo is located on the Dutch side of St. Maarten; directly across the Great Salt Pond from the port city of Philipsburg. Located just a 15 minute taxi ride from the cruise ship pier, the St. Maarten Zoo makes a fun shore excursion. Indeed, its a great way to get away from the tourist throngs and learn a little bit about the flora and fauna of the Caribbean.

Thank you Katlady! We're taking the family on the Independence in February and we think the grandkids will enjoy the zoo. I appreciate you taking the time to find it for us!
