With nearly 30e for adults very pricey for a zoo but overall a really nice experience. There is a lot to see, several themed areas that of course have a certain age but still make a good impression. To make the most of the visit check beforehand for shows and animations. Some of those need prior reservation (see crocodile feeding, take picture with animals). Obviously most animals are still locked up in cages, with all ethical implications, but some of the more open areas seem relatively "animal-friendly" compared to other zoos.

Great zoo and amusement park for 1/2 - 1 day of fun. It has nice pavilions and modern one. It is reachable by city transport and opened daily. I suggest to go there right from the morning to awoid crowds. Penguins and tropical pavilions are amazing same goes with open kangaroo exposition

We did the Manatee experience at Faunia and it was amazing; the staff were very friendly, helpful and answered all our questions, and the animals were incredible. The rest of the park is great, there are definitely better zoos out there, but Faunia has alot to offer. Highlights for me we're definitely the nocturnal animals and the sea lion show. Worth a visit if you're in Madrid and have a day spare, but it is tricky to get to from the city centre, so research public transport and plan ahead.

Quite a cool zoo with various creatures: froom kangaroos to spiders. You can actually get very close to kangaroos if the door will be opened. Moreover, the room with lots of small monkeys is available to visit. But be careful there - after food time, monkeys can do some bad stuff. Dont stand underneath monkeys cause you will understand what monkey had eaten in the morning. Spiders, scorpions, and many more available to observe. Compared to Madrid zoo, which had big creatures from around the world like rhinos, oxes and elephants, this has much smaller creatures like spiders, butterflies and scorpions. After cisiting Madrid Zoo, Faunia will leave different impressions. Would suggest visiting both. Ps look online for discount codes to save some money ;)

Best place for kids and parents. Fun way to learn about animal kingdom in this park. Park is not that crowdy and does not host all animals like Madrid zoo. Love the way animals are kept free here instead of being locked as is seen in most of the zoos. Animals are active; though its bit pricey its worth a visit. Book in advance via internet you will get good discount.
