Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / Atlantico Department / Barranquilla / Zoologico de Barranquilla
Watch pink flamingos frolick at Zoologico de Barranquilla. Opened in 1956, the zoo houses several rare species, including one of the few remaining white tigers in the world. Walk through the small zoo's jungle paths to admire a range of native and exotic animals, kept in environments designed to replicate their natural habitats.
