What people are saying about Jalisco

It is super beautiful, there are many species and very well cared for. In addition there are many other activities included in the entrance ticket. We had fun like midgets. We were two adults and two children aged 7 and 12, and we were all very pleased with the visit. We were pleasantly surprised. We didn't think it would be this pretty.
