Dr. Juan A Rivero National Zoo

Located on the city of Mayaguez, its the only zoo on the island featuring animals from Africa, the Caribbean, and South America.

Get close and personal with the wild side of Puerto Rico and have a fantastic time with your family at the Mayaguez Zoo. The zoo is managed by the Compañia of Parques Nacionales. The zoo contains a nice selection of animals which are divided into two groups which are the African Forest and the African Savannah. The zoo was recently renovated and it is very well kept. It is almost like being at a tropical garden or jungle.
