Vallarta Zoo, Mismaloya

(2.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Get up close and personal with exotic creatures from around the world at Vallarta Zoo. Different from most zoos thanks to its policy of allowing visitors to pet and feed most of the animals, the zoo offers an experience most family members, especially children, will love. You can pay extra to hold and play with lion and tiger cubs, then roam through the zoo to find plenty of other exotic creatures on display. Don’t forget your camera, and remember to bring plenty of bug spray. Make Vallarta Zoo a part of your Mismaloya vacation plans using our Mismaloya trip itinerary builder.
