  • It is a small zoo, removed from the city center, but it is worth going and having a good time with the family. Admission is free, they have a train ($5 MXN per person) that runs through the facilities. They also have a wake that you can climb up the elevator (and then a few steps), and admire the city scape. They have a safari tour, it is free and has a guide who explains details about each animal of the zoo. They also have a catamaran that takes a tour of the lake, but we could no longer take it as it only works on Saturdays and Sundays. The facilities are well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. At the entrance there was a lady who welcomed us and explained the schedules, and how the facilities were distributed. I recommend going as a family to spend a super nice time. Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes and a blocker.

  • I was so surprised in this place. A free zoo in the city with giraffes, lions, zebras, flamingos, crocodiles, others animals. Beautiful place. I really recommend it.  more »

  • It is sad that there is nothing to keep you there for long and enjoy more the facility. Once you make the Safari tour there is not much to do anymore. Besides there are not so many shady areas to sit and relax for a bit. So if You go there with small kids You will be much better on the Centenario Zoo.
  • It looks more like a nature's walk but it was still beautiful
