La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

#1 of 69 in Outdoors in Guatemala
Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
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.

  • The Zoo is a very nice attraction, walking in a straight line from the airport in less than 20 mins, 32Q entry and a business there is where to leave your backpack/suitcase. Facilities and impeccable maintenance and a food court very acceptable. A couple of hours is enough

  • We wanted to observe indigenous species of felines and pass took a stroll by this zoo. It was full of kids in visits with schools, that gave him joy and bustle to the visit. We did not disappoint.

  • I went recently and what they are doing with the place is admirable! I love that in not only renovated they are taking into account that it is a place more enjoyable for us humans, if not who are striving to give them a mini-habitat to each species. Out that the place is lovely they have a lot of animals and have special areas such as a mini-acuario, area of reptiles, penguins, meerkats, etc. It's worth fully to visit them. Before entering the facilities directly also have a play area and a restaurant.

  • I love how the Zoo was renewed. Great place to have a nice, unique family experience just in a few minutes ahead everything, right in the center of the city. Great animals can be found here and how they environments were created is fantastic.
  • The National Zoo of Guatemala, here you will find unique species from Guatemala and Central America and species from around the world. Great place to enjoy with family!
  • Very great place to visit . Have not seen African animals, but saw them here !!! Other great animals reside here.
  • They improved a lot. They've added a lot of animals (multiple birds) and organized the zoo
  • The zoo is really pretty, small but has a lot to see, animales well taken care of and very clean and neat. They have penguins and also chimpanzees which are new to the zoo. There are now VIP tours were you can feed the animals and see them backstage. There is even special places to make events and don't bother the animals.
