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.

La Aurora Zoo reviews
This is a great Zoo that has many different animals. It takes about an hour and half to see everything. Definitely worth checking out when in Guatemala City.

I truly thought this was a beautiful and impressive zoo. The tropical trees made it a lovely atmosphere (I am from Canada so maybe this is more impressive to me) and it seemed like the animals had a big amount of space to roam around. It was amusing to see raccoons at a zoo though... come to Toronto if you want to interact with those thieves one on one.
Every time I visit the zoo it's a whole new experience, fun to visit with friends and family. This time I visited during night time, it was very cool to see the animals awake. I love how the zoo keeps bringing new animals which seem to be healthy and in a nice environment. To be continually improving the spaces has make it a beautiful place.
