Make some furry friends at Zoológico de Quito, home to over 130 species of animals native to Ecuador. The zoo prides itself on being a safe haven for animals rescued from harmful living conditions. The maintenance and care for the animals on display, the camps and interactive exhibits, and the relocating of rescued animals into sanctuaries across the country are all part of the zoo's conservation efforts. On a self-guided tour of the zoo you'll see lions, monkeys, bears, and turtles. There is a small cafeteria halfway through selling snacks.
