Get up close to endangered wildlife in captivity at Zoo de Guyane, located within authentic Guyanese jungle. Recognized as the only zoo in Guyana, the institution shelters over 70 exotic (and mostly endangered) species, including pumas, jaguars, ocelots, anacondas, macaws, and iguanas. Trails through the jungle lead over suspended trees and among tall, shady canopies. The zoo enjoys a reputation for its highly responsible approach, though visitors who find the sight of animals in captivity upsetting should approach with caution.

Monkeys roam free and the footbridges above the mangroves are really nice (put on sneakers and provide water)
A lot of small enclosures. Some monkeys and birds have more space but I can't say I enjoyed the setup very much. A pro was the elevated walkway through the forest. It's cool that the zoo seems to be in a forest.
I am not a zoo fanatic but this one is pleasant, big and it seems that most of the animals have enough space. Entrance is cheap particularly if you plan to go several times in a year.
