Fodor's Expert Review Jardim Zoológico

The Modern City Zoo/Aquarium Fodor's Choice

Families should set aside a full day to explore this deservedly popular and immaculately maintained zoo, which is home to more than 3,000 animals from more than 330 species. The grounds are huge, but visitors can leap aboard a cable car to whiz from one attraction to another. Those who don't have a head for heights can board a miniature train (not included in entrance price) that trundles around the gardens. Highlights include a "Tigers' Valley," a gorilla house, a petting zoo, and twice-daily animal shows (you have your pick of those that feature parrots, pelicans, dolphins, sea lions, reptiles, or lemurs). There are several cafés on the grounds, as well as picnic areas for those who prefer a packed lunch.
