The zoo in Guadalajara is a good way to spend an enjoyable day with the family. Wear comfortable shoes as you will do a lot of walking. The animals, from lions, white tigers, elephants and giraffes to penguins and Mexican eagles, look healthy and well cared for in nice enclosures. You can decide to walk around the zoo, or take...

This zoo is famous for its white tigers, since it is one of the few that breed them. The place is clean and good for a few hours of entertainment. Food is acceptable the general layout of the place is nice and well organized.

We love to check out local zoos when we travel and this one didn't disappoint. They had a safari ride where you get to feed the giraffes and get a close up view of others. There is an aquarium there too (cost extra but not much).

Easily the best part is "SkyZoo" which is sold separately from the zoo tickets but is still very affordable. I paid less than $4 USD for my ticket (just for the zoo), and they do have student discounts as well. The SkyZoo offers a beautiful panorama of the Guadalajara mountains and an overview of the entire zoo from a lift.... More

Young kids are always hard to please, but when you take them to a zoo like this, it's a bit tired but full of enjoyment. The elevated ride is amazing, and the train is also nice to move around. The whole family spent a wonderful day at the Guadalajara Zoo, give it a try!

Great Zoo with a wide variety of animals in very large enclosures. The zoo is huge, we could not walk through the entire zoo in 3 hours we were there. We enjoyed the sky lift which runs the length of the zoo and goes over the enclosures. At the end of the zoo there is a very nice view over... More

Well planned and maintained. Clean and not smelly. Lots of space to walk, and plenty of benches to rest on. Animals are healthy and good looking, and we got to feed some on our motorized tour.

Biggest Zoo in S America where they treat animals as nicest as possible. Very clean zoo, many animals to see and highly recommend to spend there 5 hours. Very affordable zoo as well. $48cad for two adults and one child including gondola, all admissions to all animals, Safari. We keep taking about it everyday!

The zoologico of Guadalajara is a lovely zoo with a nice variety of animals and activities for all to enjoy. The only bad part is that its a bit out of the way. Unless youre in that part of town already or have a car I would not say its worth going out of the way for.
