“Surpisingly Well Done”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Like another poster, I went with family to kill a few hours while a problem aircraft was fixed at the nearby int'l airport. The animal variety is extensive, their care appears to be superior, the display areas are habitat friendly but allow for good viewing. The park is clean and well kept otherwise. Definitely, a worthwhile visit.

“Better Option than Hanging Out at the Guatemala City Airport”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Guatemala's National Zoo was much better than I expected. It has a wide variety of animals and displays most of them in an attractive setting. The grounds are beautiful, clean and well-kept, there are several options for fast-food meals, and there's a new, large playground for the kids near the eating area. Its only a couple of miles from the airport terminal so its a great option to kill a few hours if you've got a long layover or wait time for your flight or in-country transportation.

“Love it!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I took my oldest to the zoo for her 7th birthday. I've lived in Guatemala since 2001 but this is my first time to the zoo. The animals are very well taken care of, the place is nice and a good selection of animals to see.

Also, they have a food court there with a playground so you can take a trip around the zoo, eat and let the kids play then take another trip around!

“Great Little Escape”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This zoo is right in the middle of Guatemala City close to the airport. It is not as big as other zoos, but has a nice collection of animals in well kept areas. They have quite a collection of birds and seeing a group of penguins in a tropical country as Guatemala is nothing short of amazing! There are ample places for eating or just grabbing a snack. The zoo itself is very clean and safe and well worth a visit of about 2 to 3 hours.
