Zoologico Santo Domingo
The zoological park of Santo Domingo, which covers more than 1,250,000 square meters, is above all an educational, scientific and recreational institution intended for the population of the country. In this zoo, which is also a conservation area for flora, you will be able to see and observe many animal species such as big cats (lions, tigers, jaguars), monkeys, rhinos, zebras... many birds, reptiles.
The visit to the Zoo can be done in a small train however it is preferable to do the route on foot (except with young children) in order to better enjoy the visit because the train passes too quickly and there is no time observe animals or take pictures. It is also advisable to visit the zoo in the morning rather than in the afternoon, because with the heat some animals take a nap and we understand them.
The Santo Domingo Zoological Park also has for mission the conservation and preservation of certain animal and plant species endemic to the Dominican Republic.
Inside the park the visitor can find places to sit, two cafeterias, a souvenir shop and a play area for children.
