What travellers are saying
- We enjoyed our visit to the zoo.
Don’t miss the few “tree tops” to better admire the animals.
My only complain is that there are not many spots to seat down and there is a lot of walking. Bring comfy shoes!!Written 17 March 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Paseo Cayala it's a small city placed in Guatemala that have 63 acres of land, this city has a lot of entertainment things to do. Some of the things that have it, is combined housing, dining, shopping, and business districts. The exact direction of Cayala is Blvr. Rafael Landivar 10-05, Cdad. de Guatemala. The architecture of Cayala makes tourists visit it, the style it has is postcolonial. Simulates an all-white town with its own church and luxury hotel.
The ambiance that offers Paseo Cayala is relax and to enjoy the nature combined with shopping and restaurants. The two things in one makes Paseo Cayala have people consuming everyday their facilities and shops. In the terms of shopping have a lot and diverse stores of clothing, shoes, accessories, gifts, and jewelry. The restaurants don't stay behind with their options, have Italian food, Greek, Mexican, and typical. This many things the visitors love it and that is because come again.
Paseo Cayala also have some many things of entertainment that include all ages. Some of that things is canopy, laser tag, fair, cinema and special place for kids with games. Sometimes Paseo Cayala have activities that is for seasons. In the other side of the architecture of Cayala is the restaurants of Fast Food and others. Also has discos, Futeca that is for soccer, Golf, and a special place for events/concerts.
Is a place that every day is clean because their cleaning team has good order. All the people involucrate in Cayala management makes Paseo Cayala have the best organization when you talk about a big place. In every corner is a special agent that guard the people there. The size of Cayala makes have a special maintenance every often. All these things have a good impact of the visitors, also is pet friendly.
In conclusion, the city of Paseo Cayala is very complete when it comes to things to do or eat. It has many stores to buy what you can think of. Cayala's gastronomy plays a very important role since it is one of the things that distinguishes it the most. The entertainment has a variation that is very complete.

- We arrived late and only had a few minutes but the lady working the desk so so kind and kept the museum open for us for extra time. It's amazing the things that have come from the Maya sites that are on display. I appreciated how the small museum moves from oldest to youngest so you could see the progression of their arts.Written 19 March 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- On a "guided tour" for about 45 minutes, it was "fairly impressive" to see the 2 levels of this great building (one of a "pretty long" length to see from outside before entering) starting from its "inner courtyard" (also another similar one later on) to the great-sized & colorful murals beside 2 stairways (of which I was quite impressed by the one depicting a battle scene or such between the Spanish & the natives which is just "quite a detailed one" with plenty of human figures) to 2 rooms on the 2nd level each with "a fair amount of splendor" inside (one room with like a perfectly-kept big national flag on the wall straight ahead & an impressive dome above, and the other room with a number of beautiful stained-glass drawings on windows) back to the 1st level to go through some gallery-like area (with modern art paintings) and finally finishing the tour at the museum-like area back near the entrance (where on display some more paintings, a number of antique-type items & a "pretty-good-sized" miniature of this palace which I would also describe as a smaller "identical version" of this building due to its impressive craftsmanship!). And, it was overall a "nice work" by the lady who conducted the tour making sure that we saw all needed to be seen, and yes such a tour is a good idea I would say for this building with its interior kind of "spread out" (compared to the 2 other "national palaces" visited later in Mexico, namely in Merida & Mexico City, with their interior settings more-or-less similar to this palace but with "more limited" areas to walk around which can be done easily on one's own).
Located on the north side of the city's "main plaza" Plaza Mayor de la Constitucion, also to have a worthwhile time is on the "nicely spacious" plaza itself (with a fountain & a big national flag in the middle where there's also a "raised platform" to go up, and also with just plenty of pigeons seen at the time spread out all over its ground), and yes definitely should not be missed along with the Palace & Plaza is the city's "main cathedral" Catedral Metropolitana on the Plaza's east side (with its "main aisle" one of greatness lined with nice-sized paintings & "super-sized" medals of such never seen at any other cathedral). And if you're for some souvenir shopping & "local meals", a very nice place for those is Mercado Central in just a close vicinity to the Plaza (by turning left onto the "pedestrian street" from the far-left corner after the walk across the Plaza from this palace).Written 12 December 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Really "quite awesome" once stepped inside this cathedral was seeing its main aisle which I would just describe as one "packed with grandness" where along its both sides are not small but "quite sizeable" paintings depicting the life events of Christ (and with brief descriptions of the artists below from which can be determined the "historic ages" of the paintings themselves!) and also a "unique sight" (as such had been seen in no other cathedral before) which is that of "super-sized" medals likely kind of bigger versions of the medals awarded in this country for exceptional services & such. So yes, a big cathedral with quite plentiful to see inside where apart from those along the main aisle are also shrines & secondary altars (along the two length-side aisles) also with their own displays of interesting sculptures & such, this cathedral actually is one reminiscent for me of those in South America (with grand & ornate interiors in many of the "main cathedrals" of the cities) than in Central America (with just generally plain cathedral interiors from Panama & up with a few exceptions such as the Cathedral of Leon in Nicaragua & the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City).
And with the entrance from a "pedestrian street" located on the south side, very conveniently right beside that entrance is Mercado Central (a great place for all kinds of Guatemala souvenirs & also like a food court down below for some delicious "local meals"). And yes, also definitely to stop by while at this area are the 2 sites at just a very short walk from this cathedral (to the right after coming out): the city's "main plaza" Plaza Mayor de la Constitucion (with really quite a bit of space to walk around where at about its center are a big national flag & a fountain and yes where the "west face" of this cathedral is on the Plaza's east side) and the "long building" of Palacio Nacional de la Cultura on the Plaza's north side (with 2 levels of a "fairly impressive" interior to see on an hourly-or-so "guided tour").Written 6 December 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
