La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

4.6
#1 of 90 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.

  • In these times in which many people take as option a stroll in shopping malls, worth out of that routine and the zoológico La Aurora. When I was a child to this time, this zoo was greatly improved. It has very nice facilities and there is an area of fast food restaurants to eat there.

  • They have improved a lot. They have better organization and cleaning. It should take enough time to visit as it is big if is quuere visit and enjoy the visit.

  • If you travel to Guatemala with children and have a morning or afternoon free is the perfect place! It is very close to the La Aurora international airport. Very central in Guatemala City. A safe place for everyone. The facilities are beautiful. Very modern, clean and with many services: restaurants, spas, games for children, interactive activities, etc. They have a wide variety of animals and enclosures are impressive. I very much recommend the new area: Kingdom of Khan and his reptiles. Already included in entry price. Also highly recommended: feed the giraffes (an extra price of approximately $1.25 is paid per person, to feed the giraffes and taking pictures). Will not regret it!

  • 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.
