Paradizoo: My Suggested Things to Do (Mendez Cavite Upper Tagaytay)

Ever since I was young, I've had an innate enthusiasm for animals as well as plants so I just have to visit every zoo I come across and Paradizoo in Mendez Cavite (Upper Tagaytay) is no exception.  Here my suggested things to do at Paradizoo.

1. Get Up Close with the Farm Animals at Animal Farm

Mini Horse or Pony (30 php)
Ride the Rodeo

Regular Horse (50 php)

A great activity for kids up to 3 kilos is to ride the Mini Horse or Pony especially for those who haven't rode a horse before.  While, adults can ride the Regular Horse.

Share the Love Birds

Be very cautious and watch your step when you are inside Love Birds Aviary.  Grab some feeds, open your palm and have them peck gently on your hands.  It's a great experience to have love birds of various colors flocking at the palm of your hand.  

Feed the Goats

Goat Feeding (30 php)
For 30 php, you can bottle feed the baby goats.  I didn't get to try this nor did I see the baby goats though. =(

Honey Bee Farm
At the Honey Bee Farm, you can observe the busy bees at work.  I got to learn that during cold days, the bees consume their gathered honey.  But, during hot days, they make honey and cover them in wax.  They also sell the honey produce from the coffee plant and other souvenirs.  According to the staff, it is sweet with a mild sour taste.  He recommends the Honey made from Sampaloc nectar to be better tasting.
5. Appreciate Beauty at the Butterfly Garden
