('60', ''Buin zoo', ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''75', '' Buin Zoo Recommendation Index (2/5) It is the largest zoo in Santiago. Central Station can be reached by train in 25 minutes. I think Buin Zoo is very nice. But this zoo is not as big as Taipei Zoo. The rate is high (9000CLP x 400NTD) My expectations are high. But it was very disappointing to finish. If the ticket for Taipei Zoo is NT $60. I think Buin zoo is worth only NT $75 (1650 CLP). I won't go again next time.

  • We were there during the Week 2 adults and 1 child. Easy to reach, we went to the Central subway station that sits in San Pablo on the red line, we descend and we take the train that takes us to the station of the same Buin Zoo.... Facinho.... But the train has schedules so it is good to check the times before and can not use the same Metro card.... The zoo boasts great structure, well-cared animals, show with sea lions and very cool seals... The only thing we didn't like was the main restaurant lunch, little option and the tasteless food for our palate.... But this does not take the merits of the zoo that super recommend!!

  • Very nice zoo, they have interactive sections as well. Can go on train from Central station (estacion central). Highly recommend sunscreen.
  • The best Zoo to go to if you're in Santiago. The exhibits are large and they clearly respect and care for the animals unlike others zoo's such as the one in Cerro San Cristóbal. They have great places to eat, and the whole experience is very memorable!
