Zoologico Gallito De Las Rocas - Other Activity Chanchamayo - Peru

A lot of tour itineraries include this small zoo, but animal-lovers will want to avoid Gallito de la Rocas. It's not that the collection of jungle creatures isn't impressive; it's that most travelers will quickly start to think about how much happier those animals would be in the jungle, rather than in the zoo's overcrowded, dirty cages. You might get to hang out with a small monkey, but even this turns depressing as she clings to you as if you were her long-lost mother.
