La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

(900+ reviews on the web)
Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
