Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Mexico City / Parque Zoologico de Chapultepec
Meet the inhabitants of Parque Zoologico de Chapultepec, one of the country's most visited zoos. Established in 1923, the zoo underwent significant refurbishments in 1992, and today has a collection of almost 2,000 animals representing 200 separate species. Tour the grounds, which organizes residents by bioclimatic zones rather than taxonomic groups. This choice better reflects how different species live side by side in nature, and creates a more natural experience for visitors, the animals, and scientists studying their behavior. Of particular note here is the zoo's successful giant panda breeding program.

No, it's not Disney, but neither does it cost $100+ to get in. This is a free zoo and we saw many families there enjoying the animals - families who wouldn't be able to afford an expensive entrance... more »
Known as the "lungs" of Mexico City, Bosque de Chapultepec really is a vital area of the city. It's teeming with beautiful trees, plants, and....lots of young couples making out. But seriously, it's a lovely park to walk around in. It's one of the few places in the city you can actually experience some quiet!
Beautiful park. You would never know you were in a city of nearly 9 million. Clean. Lots of unique areas. Felt safe. Highly recommended.
