I was very pleasantly surprised by our day at the zoo in Guadalajara. Entry into the park and food and drinks were surprisingly affordable - not like the feeling of being ripped off at most parks & attractions in the United States. The animals all appear to be very well fed and expertly taken care of. The grounds were spotless... More

Take a Safari and feed the giraffes! Take a sky ride and lose your senses. We took a bus ride from Ajijic, Jalisco through the Lake Chapala Society of expats and enjoyed this attraction tremendously. Highly recommend the Safari, the Train ride, Sky ride and Aquarium.

I find it a nice get away if you have children or have some spare time. I was in GDL for 6 months, so I had the time. I did the big package, maybe not necessary, especially if traveling on a budget. But I wanted to do it thoroughly and hey You live only once.. No regrets

Great place for children and everyone, but first you should take the Safari because there are looong rows.

Took my two small children (1 & 3) to this zoo and had a fantastic time. We went during the week and didn't have to wait in lines etc. Make sure to ride the SkyZoo so you can catch the spectacular view of the canyon on the far side of the zoo. The safari ride and train rides are also... More

My boyfriend and I spent one day the weekend around Valentines Day. He was living pretty close to the zoo so it was easy to get there. There are busses that take you almost right to the zoo. We bought the safari ride as well as just a normal day pass and we really enjoyed it. We got to feed... More

One has to figure out which ticket to buy and what part of the zoo you want to see on what day. I would suggest getting a cheap ticket and looking at all you can on that ticket then do the "extra" stuff on another day. My favorite part of this zoo is going down to the ravine and just... More

We ended up here by mistake, our cab driver did not understand our limited Spanish but we are so happy it played out like this. The Zoo was very clean and the staff was pretty friendly. The cost of admission is very reasonable. We road the Sky Zoo, Which is basically just a chair lift from one end to the... More

This is a fun zoo for the kids. It is not the best zoo I have seen, but for the location it is well worth the trip out to see it.
