This is a wonderful and fun zoo. We got the whole package, which included a skyride over the whole zoo, with a breathtaking view of the mountains just before the ride turned around and went back. Also took the train ride. All exhibits very well done-animals very well cared for in natural settings. Highly recommend!

There are some great experiences to be had here, even for a family who frequently goes to the San Diego Zoo. The monkey enclosure in particular, where my sons got to have little creatures crawl on them, was life affirming. Safari was great, so many wonderful things. I generally dislike zoos, especially the ones I've been to in Mexico, so... More

I'm no longer thinking of Mexico as a "third world" country and the Guadalajara Zoo has helped change my view. Reasonable parking, clean throughout, and especially the animals appear to be active and reasonably well cared for. The animal information signs (fortunately I speak and read Spanish) are clear and concise with valuable information about their conservation status. Some aquarium... More

I just love visiting this zoo. It's big and has a great variety of animals. Now we have also Pinguins! You will enjoy this place, kids and adults will love it!

I liked the size of the zoo and the additional activities they have, like the tyroler, the place is really expensive in entrance and food you may wind up spending 60USD PP, there is public transportation to the place, you can bring your own lunch food there is not tasty but make sure there is no alcohol or glass in...

This was the second time my son and I went to the Zoo. I highly recommend that you go during the off season, but be prepared for primary and grade school trip to be there. We had good luck, though, and everyone was nice. The Sky Tram is worth it to see wonderful views of the animals. The Safari was... More

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
