My 8-year-old really wanted to go here so we stopped in. I figured since it was free, we had nothing to lose but some time. It's located in the beautiful and pleasant Chapultepec Park, so the overall setting is nice. The zoo wasn't especially crowded, so it's a pleasant place for a stroll. The facility has more animals than I... More

Great zoo that is laid out very well. They designed it so it is easy to see many animals without having to walk too much. Don't miss the pandas!

It was disappointing to find many cages and enclosures empty. Some interesting plants and birds, made the visit worthwhile, specially because one does not go out of the way, very near the National Museum of Anthropology.

I visited the zoo late last year (2014) with my sister and partner. I was disappointed by how all the animals looked so sad in their tiny bare cages which had nothing but a few twigs. Sometimes they didn't even have a partner to interact with. I saw monkeys and leopards staring out of their cages looking depressed. The zoo... More

MXC has a world class zoo. One of seven in the world with a panda. But aside from that, entry is FREE. It is well constructed and the lay ouy out great. Lots of shade from the sun for tourists. Walk thru the central park to the zoo. Arrive early at opening time. By the time you are done it... More

We've been number of times over the years. The condition of the animals was so apalling that I couldn't imagine returning. One macaque had a completely raw bloody bottom which I reported to a guard.

In general, the zoo is very good, with a big variety of animals and it's possible to see that they are very well maintained. But the most beautiful ones are the giant pandas! They are so cute! You can't go there and don't see the pandas!

This was a nice little side-trip if you have a hole in the schedule to fill in, or if you're in the area anyways. While it's free to enter the zoo grounds, other things cost money. Indoor exhibits had an admission fee, such as the insect pavilion, and the reptile pavilion. It also costs money to use the toilet! It... More

- Free entry near the art museum - You can hardly see any animals there, even if you did find an animal, it looks sad and miserable. - I mean this is a free entry zoo, you cannot expect lots from a zoo if it is free. They probably need up-keeping fees to maintain but from what i can see,... More
