Guatemala City with Kids

When traveling to Guatemala City with children you can find many options to have fun. Here are some of my suggestions of what to do with children:

  • Museo de los Niños (Kids Museum). A nice children museum to go with children up to 9 or 10 years. It has a small city, a giant balls pool, a theater, an earthquake simulator  and some great games, and activities for children.
  • La Aurora Zoo. Guatemala has a nice zoo where most animals are without cages. It has different areas with the typical zoo animals like hippos, lions, tigers, zebras, giraffes and camels; as well as an area with local animals like jaguars, and some other small cats and birds.
  • Irtra Petapa. This is great amusement park with rides for small and big children. It also has a dinosaur park, a small zoo and a pool. It is good for people of all ages.
  • Relief Map of Guatemala. A huge relief map of Guatemala, with observation towers, that shows the hole country as well as Belize.
  • Train Museum. A museum with trains that used to work in Guatemala, that you can climb into.
  • Army Museum. A outside museum a plane, an helicopter, a tank and other army objects, including weapons and uniforms.
