#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.

  • The Zoo is inside the Forest of Chapultepec, there is a lot of signs to get to it, you must take into account that you have to walk a LOT, you need proper footwear and comfortable clothes. The facilities are immense and on Sundays The entrance is free also for foreigners, all you have to pay is the locker to leave the bags and other costs 25 MXN ($1.50 USD) takes into consideration that the exit of the zoo is on the other hand so you must return cam I walk to the main entrance again for your things, I recommend going light. There is much to see, it is very big you can take up to 3hrs, what I did not like is that already inside you charge for going to the stations as the butterfly that is an exhibition, but you can omit it, inside the zoo there are restaurants and sale of water , however much I was closed for remodeling, anyway outside the Zoo is the fair where there are more traditional food stalls and more economical.

  • We had a great fun at the zoo we went with my baby and he liked the trip, there are some animals that are not like elephants or wolves that are not allowed the view by the time of year for them, you can not eat inside and if you carry baby you can rent stroller to $60 the Two hours. Also worth entering the butterfly garden costs $55 What is wrong are the photos as they are ugly. But If you have to walk something if you go, this very well for children, and there are many shops with sweet memories and handicrafts...
