If you are in the area of Mitla/Hierve el agua do visit this place which is really close by. It is a sanctuary for wild animals in need, mostly those who served as pets until the former owners could not handle them anymore. There are...More
Have seen this driving by from Oaxaca to Mitla but didn’t look like much- until someone said go! So we went and it was great. Most animals have been surrendered by folks who had them as pets and then couldn’t take care of them anymore....More
This is an amazing Juguar sanctuary. They have 15 Juguars, lions, monkeys, tigers, bears, a snake and crocodile. The feeding of the Juguars is amazing. They hang chicken from posts and get the cats to jump and get some exercise to hunt. The cats are...More
This zoo has a lot more than you might think it does, based on how it looks from the road. It's a completely different zoo experience than one might have in the U.S., but it is still very interesting. The zoo includes anacondas, tigers, jaguars,...More

Seriously recommend this if you love Jaguars and other kinds of big cats. They all have fairly large (though simple) enclosures and are well cared for. Take the time to come out here if you're in Oaxaca.
This is a small, independent zoo on road 190 about 30-40 minutes from oaxaca. We noticed it because of the name when driving to Mitla and decided to return another day. This was one of the best zoo experiences ever: it is quite small, in...More
We were visiting Oaxaca and were told we had to visit this zoo. Normally I'm not into visiting zoo's in other countries but we gave it a try. Boy, we were lucky we did! This zoo is very small but amazing! The fee to enter...More
