Vallarta Zoo, Mismaloya

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Mismaloya
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.

    For starters, they charge you carisimo. There is no difference between cost for adults and children. Make you a small discount if you take ID voter, which seems even more offensive, because foreigners (or who have lost their credentials) charged you more caro and in dollars. (Why pay in dollars if we are in Mexico! If there is a variety of animals, but many of them in awful conditions, bad care, sick, injured and neglected cages. The animals are sad. Many empty cages and many animals can be even well appreciated by cages/bars (could improve a lot the experience if instead of shares, crystals were put to better admire the animals and if they were found to be healthy). Sell bags with vegetables to feed the animals at an excessive price, of course the snacks, juices and water the most sold them to overprice, but without a doubt sad are the conditions that have to animals. I do not recommend it.
