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.

If you are a zoo lover, this is one of the best you'll ever visit. The animals have more space than most zoos and the variety is vast. Prepare to spend the day there. The prices are very accommodating for what you get. Even the food is more than acceptable at the outlets. My favourite has always been the little... More

From the tram, one can see the entire layout and it is beautifully planned. But - on the ground, animals do not seem well cared for, habitats poorly maintained and many exhibits cost extra.

The aquarium is very beautiful, they have a pool filled with stingrays and they have some sharks, a lot of different fish..i enjoyed this part A LOT. The... More

We went here with our four year old daughter after a few days of looking at Guadalajara's architecture and museums and a trip to Tequila. It was evident that it was time to do something "fun" for her. I'm so glad we decided on the zoo! The zoo is quite large and the price is extremely reasonable especially when you... More

I came here on Christmas Day, when everything else is closed. It wasn't much of a choice to visit, it was that or stay in the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at the zoo. Its clean, spacious, and well, not crowded (duh, its Christmas!) but there were families there visiting. I couldn't tell if they were tourists or locals. I... More
