Create an itinerary including La Aurora Zoo
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. Arrange your visit to La Aurora Zoo and discover more family-friendly attractions in Guatemala City using our Guatemala City online sightseeing planner.

  • Very nice zoo. My kids loved it , definitely will be back here. It was worth the trip from Antigua to the Zoo. I liked the guacamayas the most.

  • Surprisingly, the zoo is very well taken care of and has Disney World level. Among all zoos in the Americas that I visited, the ones in the USA sometimes are in the same level of the Zoo in Guatemala City. Congrats Guatemala, for having this precious place available for your population and for visitors to see!
  • Wow is 2022 and the zoo looks amazing. It was nice but now is wow! The price is more than Worthy Q40 adult. Has a lot of new aninals amd has been renovates, a lot of new designs and parking under roof. I love it. I give a 100%
