La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

4.6
#1 of 89 in Outdoors in Guatemala
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.

  • If you have a bunch of time to kill at the stupid little airport, you can go to the zoo! It is basically at the airport. You can walk there. They have beautiful white tigers! I watched them for hours ...  more »
  • I am not a huge fan of zoos but with that said, this is a pretty neat place. It is clean, the animals seem healthy and it appears as if they have ENOUGH room. Not a lot, but they do not seem cramped. ...  more »
  • It is a nice family activity option in Guatemala City. The zoo is well kept. There are restaurants and swings. The Penguins' area is better than some I've seen at other parks in other countries.  more »

  • Highly recommended so far the best zoological park I have visited in Central America, is does not lack anything a zoo may have in the US, come early to take your time to visit and enjoy. Infrastructure is well kept, clean and the animals are well maintained. GOOD JOB GUATEMALA
  • Very nice zoo! Most animals are there, and it's well organized. I recommend
  • Had a great time feeding a giraffe, riding a train, and seeing all the animals! Prices are very reasonable and staff is friendly and helpful.
  • The animals are always looking good. The zoo is always clean, and there are several restaurants there so is very convenient
  • Pretty cool, chill place. Great environment, very clean. In Guatemala make sure to bring your own toilet paper everywhere you go. Overall really fun small zoo.
