#2 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in Mexico City
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.

  • Thank God we had a good weather day, not so cloudy or so much sun, so we enjoyed them a lot. The idea was for the 3- and 1-year-olds to meet and take a picture with the panda bears and we could achieve the goal. It was nice to see penguins, we didn't know they had... There are several species and we were able to go through almost everything thanks to God we carried strollers we could see the most striking animals for children without them walking much and the same without carrying them so much. We didn't think he was tired, even though they did because they ended up surrendered and asleep. But it was nice to walk with family and get to know so nice place, it is well maintained and the animals look good. If you go with a lot of family it is a good option not to spend as admission is free. Let's visit responsibly, so that this lasts many more years.

  • It's my second time I've visited the Chapultepec Zoo, this time I didn't find it so well maintained and the animals not in such good condition. But it's still a fun activity with kids. I recommend for kids hat, sunscreen and carry water, it is to walk quite
