Zoologico Miguel Alvarez del Toro reviews
When I read that the zoo in Tuxtla Gutiérrez, Chiapas, had been called, back in 1979, “The Best Zoo in Latin America,” I knew I had to pay it a visit. And I was not disappointed. Zoológico Regional..... more »
I came here because everyone was telling me I should visit and I left heartbroken. The animals are being held in very small enclosures and they didn't seem healthy at all. more »
Lots of waking. LOTS. Like 5km or so one guy joked. Spectacular displays, even though I don't like the idea of animals cooped up. One of the best zoos I've ever visited.
Amazingly huge. It's a beautiful place to visit if you are in for a walk! I would say it's more like a huge public park then a zoo. To be honest not to much to see. This zoo does not offer to much to see or do. It has more exsotic birds then anything else!! Obviously yeah it has other animals. But no giraffes elephants, or dolphins. Am giving it a 4 star because the zoo has concerve a lot of nature. Plus it's a very clean place!! My kids love nature, but sadly no petting zoo for the small ones! Price as of 7/25/19 adults 25 and kids are 15 pesos.
