Beach at the lake is nice

Average zoo, sad to see some of the animals in caged conditions when they could be roaming free in the jungle. The beach at the lake is a nice place to go to.

The animals here look sad, stressed and not that well looked after! The beach area on the lake is very pretty, but be careful not to dive or you might hit a submerged log. Overall I'm not into zoos, but this one is on the big miss list

I was staying in Iquitos and got a mototaxi with a friend down here for the day. We rented a pedalo and spent 3 hours exploring the lush outskirts of the lake. I got lots of sun (beware, it's very strong, especially if you're on the water) and had a really nice time. It's a really beautiful place with a... More

If you want to see animals you have to come here. For more that you are in the Amazon you will not see animals easily so you come to this place and you know all the local fauna.

The animals are pretty cool. It only takes a couple of hours to see the whole thing and take a swim.

Spent a couple hours here taking pictures of various wildlife species, then taking a swim at their lake beach. Overall, well worth the time and effort. If you don't like the concept of a zoo, I don't recommend coming. Numerous wildlife species especially birds and cats.

Only found out about this place on my last day in iquitos, otherwise I would have spent a few days here. Huge zoo with every type of animal you could think of. Some of the enclosures could be bigger and nicer but for Peru this was pretty good. Best part about this place though is the massive jungle lagoon! It's... More

I believed that is too cruel for an animal to be trapped in a cage but to be in a shoe box !!!that doesn't have name ...+ the lagoon is totally disappointed is dirty people should give it a good care and cleanliness to the lagoon and park.
