Paradizoo is a farm theme park in Tagaytay which we learned is the property of owners of Zoobic in Zambales. The 10 hectares property is the home of various farm animals, such as goats (there’s hundreds of them), one-humped camels, miniature horses (perfect for toddler who wants to experience their first horse-back riding, some ostriches (though not as pretty as those found in Zoobic and Avilon Zoo, native carabaos, wild pigs, bees, ducks, and one-colored peacocks.
To get around Paradizoo, you may opt to take the golf cart. But if you’re looking for a little exercise, touring the property by foot is also a breeze. Just make sure it did not rain the previous night since the road may get muddy when it rained.
One attraction of Paradizoo is the Infinity Pond of Positivism where a mini-pavilion lies on the center. I didn’t get to take a good shot of the pond because during that time, there were two guests who were having fun fishing. (duh!)
Another attraction of Paradizoo is the miniature horses (not ponies), where toddlers can enjoy a ride for P25. If your kids are scared you may pay P10 to have their pictures taken.
Over all, Paradizoo is a good and more accessible alternative to Zoobic. But if you don’t mind traveling to Zoobic, I would suggest you visit Zoobic instead. It’s a good thing Paradizoo is just near Metro Manila, so you can check anytime during weekends.
To get to Paradizoo, just take the main road from Tagaytay Rotonda going to Batangas. After passing Mendez market, watch out for the Paradiso sign on the right. From that corner, it’s a 10 minute drive on a dirt road which will lead you all the way to Paradizoo.
Entrance Fee to Paradizoo is P199/person. Golf Cart rental is P100, horse back riding cost P25.
By the way, before reaching the street that leads to Paradizoo, you might want to check out a coffee shop and bakery called Bag of Beans, just right after the market. I highly recommend taking your breakfast there. Find out why at Pinoy Urban Blog.
