A great Safari tram ride among free roaming giraffes, Mexican longhorns, deer, ostriches, etc. (costs a few extra pesos) also an area of rides if you are there with children. A changing seasonal exhibit area...right now it is Dinosaurs. A great... More

We spent a couple of hours at the zoo and it was thoroughly enjoyable.

There are plenty of opportunities to get close too - the white rhino... More

I was impressed with the size of this zoo for a city like León. Quite large, with a safari. Be careful on a rainy day though, it gets super muddy to the point that you can't walk to the safari area. Needs attention.

The enclosures are not great, but the stroll is very enjoyable, especially if you have small kids. There is a nice petting zoo, and a small safari, too.

Este zoológico es la forma mas económica y segura que me he encontrado para llevar a mi niña (3 años) a aprender y convivir con la naturaleza. Es un Zoologico interactivo instructivo, ya que cada jaula te incluye información interesante con la que me sentí un gran maestro. La única pregunta que no pude responder a mi niña es; Porque...

There were many different types of animals in various habitats, inexpensive y muy rico food for sale at the food stands and I was amazed at how clean they kept the... More
