We visited this zoo during the Brazilian winter months. It is a little place but worth the stop. They have several animals from South America. Displays and plants to see in a lot of variety. Cost $5 real and 12 and under are free

Amazingly beautiful! Simply of one the best urban places to watch flowers and animals I've ever been, and for a very affordable price! One of Santos' assets for decades.
