Parque Zoologico de Chapultepec, Mexico City

(2.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Meet the inhabitants of Parque Zoologico de Chapultepec, one of the country's most visited zoos. Established in 1923, the zoo underwent significant refurbishments in 1992, and today has a collection of almost 2,000 animals representing 200 separate species. Tour the grounds, which organizes residents by bioclimatic zones rather than taxonomic groups. This choice better reflects how different species live side by side in nature, and creates a more natural experience for visitors, the animals, and scientists studying their behavior. Of particular note here is the zoo's successful giant panda breeding program.

  • It is a very large Zoo, if you visit it on weekday mornings is empty and you can walk quiet, admission is free. It has two pandas that are the main attraction but I went twice at different times and always found them asleep sunbathing.

  • The zoo is well maintained, animals are healthy and amazing photos can be removed! Entrance fee is cheap and is worth visiting it!

  • Is a free attraction, but owe a lot. The biggest attraction was the panda no longer exists and several "cages" were empty. In any case worth a visit since it's free and is within the Park Chupaltec which is an interesting place. There's also a mariposário, very interesting that is paid (50 pesos per person).
