Inaugurated in 1975, the Parque Zoológico Nacional is one of the zoos largest in Latin America. The zoo exhibits a wide variety of animals, including both local and imported species. Visitors can opt to visit the park on foot, a task that can be arduous sometimes due to the steep hills, or take the guided tour in the zoo´s train for a moderate fee. The guided tour (given in Spanish) is informative and interesting. There is a large aviary, a serpentarium and a children´s area.
