The Guadalajara Zoo is the best zoo in Mexico, period. Although there is the Puebla safari, the GDL Zoo has a lot more popullation of animals, including aquarium, serpentarium and an amusement park.

Variety of animals, attractions and places. Try to go early to the zoo as it takes many hours to walk. Choose the ticket that include many train rides as you can go from one point to another in less time.

I can't say enough about the Guadalajara Zoo. As a family we've been to a few.. (Milwaukee, San Diego, Monterey Bay). This is by far the BEST one we've ever been to! The zoo is open from 10a-6p. You pay a mere $4.50 US for adults and $2 US for kids for general admission. A bargain compared to US zoos.... More

I went to the zoo twice. The first time I took a walking tour and saw the animals and made friends with the exotic birds. The second time I went my experience was better. I took the sky tram over the zoo and got a really good overview. I should have done that first and then done the walking tour.... More

My family visited the zoo two summers ago. We went to Guadalajara to visit my daughter who was attending the medical school down there. She had just had knee surgery a week before and we took her around in a wheel chair. We enjoyed the sky lift and the large tortoise area, plus the monkeys were a lot of fun.... More

This is a awesome zoo.Have to admit,I didn't expect the experience that we had here. There is lots of hands on,including little monkeys,a chance to feed the giraffes on the Safari ride. They also have a chairlift ride,that takes you over the Safari park. I've been to zoos through out the US,but none come close to the experience I had... More

After experiencing the Guadalajara Zoo, my wife appraised me of what Tripadvisor rates as the top zoos in the world. Only one is south of the US border with Mexico. Our experience at the Guadalajara zoo was very pleasant, but this may not have been because the collection itself was excellent. There is a moderately large amount of animals, all... More

You can go on a safari, be a veterinarian at the pet zoo, watch some shows, touch the mantas and even dive in a cage at the sharks tank!!!!! Its a great family trip

This zoo is set up very thoughtfully. Lots of space and easy to get around. Animals are well kept in clean attractive environments. Inexpensive and well worth another visit
