Zoological Park in Santo Domingo
Description of the Zoo in Santo Domingo
The Zoo of Santo Domingo,
which covers more than 1,250,000 square meters, is primarily an
educational, scientific and recreation for the people of the Dominican
Republic. In this zoo, which is also a conservation area for flora,
you can see and observe many species of animals such as lions, tigers,
jaguars, monkeys, rhinos, zebras, many birds, reptiles ...
Visit the Zoological Park can be done in a small train, however, is preferable to make the journey on foot (except young children) to better enjoy the visit because the train is going too fast and leaves no time to observe the animals or take photos. It is also advisable to visit the zoo in the morning than in the afternoon heat with some animals are rested, like me.
Zoo organizes special tours for schools with special rates for groups, to allow children to discover the fauna of the Dominican Republic and around the world.
The Zoological Park of Santo Domingo is also responsible for the conservation and preservation of certain plant and animal species endemic to the Dominican Republic.
Inside the park the visitor can find places to sit, two cafeterias, a souvenir shop and a playground for children.

It was a beautiful afternoon that I spent with my children but the disappointment was that there were almost no animals and I think if you pay a ticket to see for example crocodiles and are not disappointed.

A bit disappointed by the visit with the train that goes far too fast, not even time to take a picture.
