This is a must when visiting Santo Domingo, the zoo is small but the enclosures are well kept, the animals are healthy and the personnel is people oriented. Is important to take sun block and drinks. The train ride is a blast for the kids

Nice installation that needs a little more maintenance and better display of animals. Nevertheless, it is a good way to spend the day with the kids and have a picnic.
