We know that it is not easy to keep children entertained at home and with the arrival of the holidays it is likely that the family wants to get out of the routine. Therefore, today we want to share with you some places that you can visit to learn about nature, entertain yourself and rest.
Avenida Las Américas
A place to visit on Sunday mornings and exercise, share with the family, ride a bike or even skate. In addition, it allows pets. Monuments and ornamental Jacaranda trees along the ride would be a perfect place to take a ride near the city. Since 2018 we have been collaborating with the NGO Semillas del Océano (https://semillasdeloceano.org/material-educativo/) where we have donated coloring and guided activities about Marine species. We were located at this family weekend passage (“Pasos y Pedales” was a Sunday activity done in Avenida Las Américas, near the International Airport La Aurora).
Zoológico La Aurora
In this place, children can meet the animals live and in full color. If you want to know more about some animals like the giraffe, you can take a VIP Tour. The Zoo has exhibitions of native Guatemalan animals, which have also served us to continue creating an extensive photographic archive and to have live references for our drawings and animated videos. Don’t miss the spider monkey and the otter exhibitions, those are one of the cutest native animals to contemplate![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
La Granja de Don Pietro
It is an interactive farm surrounded by nature, where children can learn about animals. From little rabbits to horseback riding, this is an outdoor spot for kids that they are sure to love.
Senderos de Alux
It is a series of trails surrounded by nature, where you can enjoy a relaxing outdoor family experience. They have trails in the heights, where you can see a panoramic and unobstructed view crossing hanging bridges.
La Jungla Urbana
La Jungla Urbana (Urban Jungle) is a community ecological park that seeks to improve the economic, social, and environmental conditions of the ravine between zone 10 and zone 15 of Guatemala City, by generating research, alliances, work, and active participation of neighbors and citizens
We were lucky to celebrate there a festival for Biodiversity back in 2019. Watch out a bit of this familiar event here: https://youtu.be/srRlO0G4Beo
