The Wameru Zoo was established 25 years ago and has a collection of over 1800 animals from all 5 continents; many are endangered species, which is why Wameru opened its facilities to the public, to promote education, and animal research and preservation.

It’s the only zoo in Querétaro and an excellent option for a day out with your family.
