  • Zoos we have visited this is one of my favorites, is beautiful, very well care and organized, is full of Chiapas species, this makes it even more special, it has staff that you can talk about the species that you are observing in many parts of the route, there are loose animals and that loves kids, whole family loved Park beings which is at the entrance to , by 10 pesos per person sporting a while, there are bathrooms, areas to eat and buy snacks and drinks in large part of the tour. Wear comfortable clothes because the route is long, shoes covering her feet completely can they get any coral in the path that is in the area of the cats, the Museum which is within is very interesting with skeletons of many animals, making the full trip will spend minimum 3 hours at the zoo, visit mandatory if the trip is family.

  • For my point of view it is one of the best zoos I've ever been, in first facilities are very nice, animals are practically in their habitat as opposed to other zoos that simulate it. While doing the (very tidy) tour you can hear the sound of which is very characteristic of Chiapas, Howler monkey as well as you can see beautiful landscapes of vegetation. And best of all is that its cost is dirt cheap, in my case arrived before 10:00 am and left us in $10.00 pesos.

  • Excellent place to meet animals endemic, since it is located in the Natural Reserve El Zapotal, breathes fresh air and walking very much, so it is advisable to use comfortable shoes.
