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

I am proud of the Zoologico Guadalajara. It has a lot of different areas where you can experience different things. It's got an... More

It's a big zoo, so you better take advantage of the free train rides. There are many interesting atractions to know. SkyZoo is highly recommended.

Last week both my brother and I brought my child to the Guadalajara Zoo. The workers are way too nice. I didn't find any baby changing stations (for example Koala Care) in any of the Mens restrooms I entered. My child was entertained, but to my knowledge the spaces for the different species we got to see, are way too... More

This is our second time visiting the zoo as a family. The price for the diamond package went up 10 pesos in a year but the value for what you get is unbeatable. There is a lot of gind to cover its a big zoo. The first time we greatly enjoyed the squirrel monkey interaction cages, we would let the... More
