  • Countless times walked in Chiapas and wondered why visit a Zoo? having so many things to do here, and that was wrong, we have the custom that zoos in major cities are models of natural regions with animals asleep in the best of cases, and in many other there them, as ZOOMAT is the exception, the peculiarity is that there are animals on the trees that they are on the loose that it makes you feel as if you were on an expedition, they exhibit a quantity other large reptiles and endemic amphibians and attractive to personal consideration are huge lizards that are highly recommended to visit with family, travel is rather long for it would be advisable to wear comfortable shoes and bottled water. Very affordable price

  • It's a zoo all that there is more classic. The enclosures are small and poorly maintained. Some pens have very nauseating odors.
