  • Zoological de San Martin is a Zoo that has many birds as well as monkeys and even a white tiger. There are a lot of stairs and hills to walk up throughout the Zoo so be prepared for a workout.  more »
  • We had another morning over and went to the zoo. A nice zoo which is not for people with wheelchair or bad to leg because of the many stairs. The white tiger is worth the effort but also the other local animal species are nice. For $3.50 a nice morning out
