I have always loved zoos and have visited many around the US. This zoo... I will definitely visit again. Besides being full of interesting exhibits, unusual animals, and delicious (made to order) concessions.The grounds are magnificent with blooming trees, beautiful flowers and breathtaking vistas of the ravines and mountains (all natural). Additionally, the staff could not be more helpful and... More

I have to say this zoo is much better than the ones in California, much larger and of coarse much more to see and do, the best part of the zoo had to be hands down the safari road trip which you get to encounter giraffes and feed them carrots right of your hand!, my kids had a blast doing... More

This was not on the agenda to visit, but after reading the positive reviews, we decided to do go. As the title says, this was paradise. If you're looking to escape the city noise and enjoy the tropics, this is the place. It was so peaceful. This was truly a great zoo. If you enter the enclosed monkey habitat, be... More

This zoo exceeded my expectations. It's been recently remodeled and is fantastic. It's clean, organized - with lots of kiosks for food, snacks, bathrooms, etc. There is a little train that has 3 or 4 stops and takes you around the zoo. Plus there is a sky ride to ride over the animals and observe them from above. You could... More

I heard about this place before traveling to GDL. I took the macrobus and I got there early in the morning. It's a very clean place, it has a nice aquarium with fishes that you would not find everywhere. They offer the option to swim with sharks. I wish I had done it but unfortunately they did not accept credit... More

Please call first, the website was not up to date. We visited near Christmas hours, travelling for some time before arrival, only to find out that the zoo was closed. When we complained that that the holiday hours posted online suggested that the zoo was open, we received only a shrug. Sucks for us, and would try again.

Well maintained. Clean areas. Huge amount of animal species from arou d the world and the animals seems well cared. I strongly suggest to visit this Zoo and dont forget to take the Safari tour for just a couple of dollars more. Is not expensive and worth the money. We had a great time at this zoo. One of the...

I have mixed feelings about zoos, but this one is mostly thumbs-up. Beautifully landscaped with, in the main, large and interesting environments for the animals, especially in the "safari" area. The main positive thing I noticed was the huge number of baby animals. I figure that if animals are happy and healthy enough to reproduce AND to carefully raise their... More

I know several zoos from around México and some from USA, and I can say this is one of the most complete and informative zoo. The installations, and bathroom are very clean, the sights are clear, and of course if you go you should not loose the trip to the Safari and the teleférico!you can have a fan day, just... More
