Intro • Photo Gallery • Zoo Memberships & Adoptions • Volunteering at the Zoo

Our mission is to offer, first and foremost, the residents of Puerto Vallarta, as well as the national and international visitors, a place of recreational understanding as to the current goals of today's modern zoos, based on the enormous educational potential that can be offered, with the means to promote and develop a conscience of life understanding that helps to preserve and enrich the knowledge of the relation between humans and the environment.

Our vision is to soon become one of Latin America's most recognized parks of recreation and education, where the resources are available for investigation and self-sufficiency, where it is also possible to protect all animal species and even more, those which are in danger of extinction.

We offer all citizens and visitors with ongoing workshops on environmental education, flora and fauna, while making everybody aware of the importance of environment preservation.

For your convenience, we have a full restaurant area on the premises.

We own approximately 64 hectares (158 acres), in which 5 hectares (12 acres) have been developed. The remaining 59 hectares (146 acres) are foreseen for future expansion of the park.

With your help, these projects have been contemplated to be finished by the year 2018.
