Nice collection of animals (birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and so forth from South America). Even more interesting is the zoo itself: pretty hilly and not a completely easy walk. Take a taxi or the bus to the hospital and then a taxi up the hill (it's a mile or more up a fairly steep hill). Then you can walk back to the bus or take the taxi back - they are cheap, maybe $3.50 for this trip.

Surprisingly, this zoo is one of the best I’ve ever been to. The exhibits are very natural and we even saw some animals that could easily stroll in and out of their enclosures as they pleased. In fact, the monkeys were climbing all over the keepers, snatching food from their hands. This is a rustic zoo, so bring good walking shoes for the hilly terrain. Expect to spend a few hours exploring the exhibits, where you can see Andean bears, puma, jaguars, lions, condors and more. It costs just US$4 to enter.
