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.

Very gorgeous zoo with an incredible amount of foliage everywhere that contributes to the experience. There is a decent (although not enormous) selection of animals and a lot of work has been put into the exhibits. My only minor complaint is that there are no maps, which coupled with the winding paths, makes it a little difficult to navigate efficiently.
This is one of my favorite zoos that I have been to. The zoo is beautiful and the animals are close enough in the exhibits that they are easy to see, as opposed to some zoos where the enclosures are so large the animals are far away. My favorite exhibit was where you got to go into the ring-tailed lemur area and they run around you while you walked through. There is also a very large playground area for the kids to play at near the restaurants.
