365 Fun Things to do in Puerto Vallarta – Go to the Zoo

Puerto Vallarta ZooThe Puerto Vallarta Zoo is an experience completely different than going to the zoo in the United States or Canada.  In my opinion a visit is a must do fun thing.  The Puerto Vallarta zoo is located about thirty minutes from El Centro Vallarta by car or an easy forty five minute bus ride.  Located southshore across from Hotel Barcelo.  Once you arrive you can park and enjoy a walk to the front gates to begin your adventure or take a short detour and enjoy a relaxing horseback ride through the wilderness first.  When you get to the front gate of the zoo you will have the opportunity to buy snacks, water, etc. for your walk through the zoo.  The best part, you can buy snacks for the animals too.  If you choose you can buy a large bag of veggies and openly feed giraffes, monkeys, flamingos, and much, much more.  With the exception of a few animals where it would be unsafe, most animals in the Puerto Vallarta Zoo are in open cages and habitats.  Some even run free around the paths of the zoo like the peacocks.  Bring comfortable shoes so you can enjoy the hike throughout the entire zoo, it is quite large.

With all the animals you can imagine, not only can you feed them, you can also play with some animals.  They often have baby tigers, lions, or jaguars.  As babies you can hold and feed them, when they are at least a couple of months old you can play with them and at about six months you can gently pet and take photos.  After about six months they will go into their habitat in the zoo and not have contact with guests.  The zoo in Puerto Vallarta is a great vacation experience or a must if you live here.  Enjoy!
