Parque zoológico de Chapultepec was an interesting experience. There's nothing like a day at the zoo for couples and kids. There are plenty of sights to see. Just know it can get super crowded.

Try to go during the work week, if you can, to avoid the ENORMOUS weekend crowds. But even if you go on weekends it is a most pleasurable experience, with an incredible variety of animals to see.
