“Pretty nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I like La Aurora, its big enough to get tired and nice price, there are a lot of things to do, and several restaurants, most of them "comedores" really cheap food not so good but not to much to choose from, lots of animals to see, a special room where you can seel serpents, a little farm, there is a theater for kids, i recommend this Zoo for a family trip.

Wonderful place, simple but beautiful. Lovely grounds, nice and clean. Lots to see, great to just sit on a bench and enjoy the peaceful quietness.

“entertaining place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I came back after 20 years and I had better memories about it but even so I regard it as good place. I had fun and there were nice animals.

“Best Zoo in Central America”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Having Passed through San Pedro La Laguna,Yesterday to pick up our luggages in the hostel we stayed at to continue our trip to the south,we decided to stay a day In Guatemala city today before travelling tommorrow to the south and visit the zoo.This zoo is the best zoo so far we have seen in central America with almost all kinds of animals you could think of from all around the world.The zoo has lions from Africa and many other animals from Asia and rest of the world I coould no have imagine seing in my life time.Guatemala city was pretty safer than we thought and the area where the zoo is located is just off the reforma big town area where big offices are located in the city and its pretty safe to walk around.This place is highly recommended for travellers to come visit.This is a must see wonder in Guatemala city and you can find all sort of eateries like Mac donlad and bugger king here.I love it here and will recommend this zoo to animal lovers

“Nice Zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Very well laid out, easy to follow path, very clean, and updated.
It could use a few more bathrooms around. We really enjoyed the new Penguin exhibit. The kids had a ton of fun and so did we.
