La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Come and see the animals at La Aurora Zoo, a large zoological park. Established in 1924 as part of a major regeneration project, the zoo has become a popular place to escape the city rush. Head to the African section to see zebras, lions, and buffalos, and spot three species of Asian monkeys, with howlers shouting at the overhead traffic from the nearby airport. Take a stroll through the landscaped gardens, relaxing under the shade of the trees, and head to the onsite restaurants when you're feeling in need of a meal.

  • Muy limpio y bien cuidado todo
  • Fantastic zoo and fun place to spend a day with the kids! I am impressed by the cleanliness, nice design, and evident good health of the animals. Good job Guatemala!!!
  • I am not a big fan of Zoo's to be clear. When I was asked to go to the Zoo in Guatemala City I was thinking no. I am glad I went. The Zoo is clean, well kept and with a different variety of animals then most Zoo's. Food courts, nice settings a great place to spend a day and enjoy the outside and lots of animals.
  • Beautiful zoo with tropical gardens and a lot of animals, if you had kids and have a long lay over in La Aurora Airport visit the zoo is aprox. 5 minutes by taxi, or 20 minutes walk. Better take taxi to not have to walk with luggage. The area has a Children Museum and Handicraft shops less than 5 minutes away.
  • Lots of empty spots..nothing impressing to see here other than a few exotic animals.
