#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.

  • We visited the butterfly, the entrance fee is affordable, the place is nice, the souvenir shop lacks a little, in general it was a parent experience

  • We visited the CDMX Zoo every time we visit the city, and we get a very big disappointment when we see the state it is in today. The facilities are badly damaged and some animals are in poor condition, even many of them without water to drink or swim. There is also no up-to-date information and many signs are unpainted and/or blurred. The only thing that saves the place is the Butterfly (paid), and the Panda Bears area. Another attraction has been the Penguins, but on this occasion their visit was not enabled. If you plan to go these days, also note that the restaurant area no longer exists and that you can't get food or drinks in. Please CDMX authorities: Don't let the deterioration of the Zoo keep moving forward!
