Zoologico de Vallarta?

Can anyone tell me anything about this zoo in Mismaloya? We always visit the local zoo when we're traveling stateside but know nothing about zoos outside the U.S.

It's a small interesting zoo with many native animals set in a jungle setting. Be forewarned, though, it's nothing like the big US zoos if that is what you are looking for.

I just returned from Dreams.

My sister and I went to the zoo you are referring to. It was a nice zoo and you can see they are trying to improve it. The animals looked well fed. I think some of the pens and cages were a little small. For $5.00 you can buy a very large bag of food to feed the animals. Carrots, grain, animal cookies etc. on the bag they tell you what animal can have what. I think you can get a little to close to some of the animals. (black jaguar for one) I could of put my hand on him. It is worth going to. After going to Sigfrid and Roys secret garden last month it was not the same.

We visited the zoo in 2007 and enjoyed it very much. This trip we encountered people who went and while enjoying it they were definitely bitten by bugs. I would suggest taking some bug repellent just to be on the safe side. It is definitely worth the trip.
