Family

There are zoos in Canada, but none are set in a lush jungle or allow you to frolic with baby animals. Puerto Vallarta's zoo is home to eight Bengal tiger cubs who love to play with kids. If you're not comfortable having your children petting these critters, the zoo allows you to feed animals such as giraffes, spider monkeys, zebras, hippos and ostriches.

The zoo is about a 15-minute taxi ride from downtown Puerto Vallarta, and is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission includes a bag of food to be fed to the animals.

Age group: age 2-9
