Very small and expensive

Far away from the city center and small. Buy directly from zooave, viator charges too much. Not worth the money
This isn't a tour, it's just...

This isn't a tour, it's just admission to Zoo Ave the ave is for birds in Spanish, not short for avenue. Lots of species, some native to Costa Rica, but most either seized as pets and not capable of living in the wild, and others injured, like the toucan with the prosthetic beak. It's perhaps not up to the standards of a US wildlife rescue facility, but a lot for a small country and a good experience.
