La Aurora Zoo, Guatemala City

Come and see the animals at La Aurora Zoo, a large zoological park. Established in 1924 as part of a major regeneration project, the zoo has become a popular place to escape the city rush. Head to the African section to see zebras, lions, and buffalos, and spot three species of Asian monkeys, with howlers shouting at the overhead traffic from the nearby airport. Take a stroll through the landscaped gardens, relaxing under the shade of the trees, and head to the onsite restaurants when you're feeling in need of a meal.

  • If you are close to the airport you can pass the zoo the aurora. It is the largest zoo in Guatemala, there are varied restaurants to enjoy even an atol of elote. The most attractive thing for me are the humbolt penguins that are until the end of the tour. I also recommend the serpentine.

  • Great place to go with the family. Lot's of animals and well taken care off, clean facilities. You have to go early to be able to see everything they have. We we're not able to see all the animals. Check schedule to make sure you have time to see everything.
  • Amazing zoo! Left me really impressed. It was big, spacious and wonderfully set up. We had a 22 month old with us and she had a blast. I would defineltu recommend this for anyone visiting with children of any age. Myself, as an adult had a great time. You can spend at least half a day here easily.
