Undoubtedly Madrid Zoo is a great place to go at the weekend with friends or family. With a variety of species that can be seen up close. From classic elephants, giraffes, lions and some adorable pandas are now in a controlled environment with high summer temperatures. In certain hours of the day there are dolphin or bird shows that are phenomenal. Don't miss out on the snakes and the aquarium are a show by themselves. I recommend doing this tour with children, they'll have a great time. You should bring food or drinks because prices are inflated in the Zoo.
