If you are going to be in Valencia , you should not miss the opportunity to visit the Bioparc , a totally new zoo that is very careful with the environment and especially with the animals, which live there in total freedom. It is not very common to visit a zoo where all the animals are at ease without being caged, but fortunately these types of places, which we could call "new generation zoos", are beginning to be seen in various cities around the world.
At Bioparc Valencia , animals are separated from visitors thanks to natural barriers formed by rivers, waterfalls or trees, but never with any element that prevents them from moving freely or forcing them to stay in a confined space. A highly recommended place for all animal lovers, especially if you have children as they will love being able to see them in their habitat and feel that they are practically out for a walk with them.
Here you will also enjoy some endangered animals , such as the Baringo giraffe (there are only 500 left in the world) or a baby of Dril, which was born recently and of whose species there are only about 5,000 in the world. In addition, Bioparc collaborates with the Fundación Instituto del Trópico to recover and reintroduce some species that are in danger of extinction in the mountains and jungles of various parts of the world.
You will also be able to see various species of primates , such as apes, gorillas or chimpanzees and many more. Inside this wonderful zoo you can not only enjoy the animals but there are 3 restaurants where you can eat or have a drink while you rest for a little while, these places are always exhausting. The Bioparc Valencia is on Pío Baroja avenue , number 3.
It opens at 10 in the morning and depending on the time of year it closes at 5, 6 or 7 p.m. Tickets cost € 23.80 for adults and € 18 for children, but they usually launch special promotions with which you save a lot.
