Located in Mismaloya, the Vallarta Zoo is surrounded by lush jungle vegetation in one of Puerto Vallarta’s most exotic zones. This naturally tropical environment provides the perfect setting for the zoo’s more than 400 mammal, bird and reptile inhabitants. Half the animals on display are indigenous to Mexico, and most every creature found in this area is represented – jaguars, pumas, coyotes, ocelots, tlacuaches, coatimundis and quite a few bird and reptile species among them – crocodiles and iguanas included.
The Zoo also has a nice restaurant with a wide variety of Mexican dishes and snacks for your enjoyment, as well as an assortment of reasonably priced zoo tour packages designed to cater to your particular interests. In the near future, the zoo will also feature rental cabins, a railway, a water park and an amusement park, in the hopes that it will soon become one of Latin America’s most recognized recreational and educational parks.
The imagination and the good will of the Castañeda Jimenez family, who own the zoo, is reflected in all its splendor at the Puerto Vallarta Zoo. This amusement center not only provides a safe place for animals in danger of extinction, but also gives Puerto Vallarta an additional attraction that no tourist, nor resident should miss.
