  • The park was relatively quiet on a weekday, and there was no wait to participate in any of the exhibits. I am giving it a 4*, because only 70% of the exhibits had an English translation. The aquarium and terrarium are pretty basic compared to other places. I was also pretty taken aback by the cleaning chemicals in the carts in old Gatorade and other drink bottles, unlabeled and left on carts fully accessible to children. Some of the exhibits also had warnings to keep your hands away or watch your children, but some of them looked pretty hazardous from a North American point of view. Definitely would not take children under 5 unless you want to spend the day in the childcare centre
  • The best experience in Colombia. It’s not only for kids but for the whole family. You can find a great variety of activities to do as a group or alone, and enjoy according to your habilitéis and tastes. There’s is a space for memory, time, music, cinematography and even an aquarium and “vicarious”. Each activity better than the previous. Funny and quite interesting. Another must go for foreigners. The only drawback I found was in the aquarium. Some fishes had really small spaces for swimming, and that made me feel them sad... I hope they fix that.
