La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

4.6
#1 of 62 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.

  • Within the city of Guatemala exists the Zoológico La Aurora (very close to the La Aurora International Airport) that features animals classified in different continents and where you can start to see what more you like. It is an area full of trees and vegetation that makes the very pleasant stay while you enjoy watching your favorite animals in enclosures created especially for them. There are benches for you make a stop and rest in the shade of a tree, since travel is large. If you go with adults, you could make the journey in two hours. If accompany you young children, perhaps can not see all the cabinets because it is tiring for them. For children of all ages, I recommend two hours of stay and see animals that most would call them attention. I recommend go from November to may, which is the non-rainy season in Guatemala.

  • 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.
