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.

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.
