Autosafari Chapín - Other Activity Escuintla - Guatemala

Central America’s only safari park, Autosafari Chapín is a wonderfully different day out in Guatemala and one that kids will love. The drive through several enclosures brings (sometimes surprisingly close) encounters with lions, rhinos, leopards and some species native to the country such as white-tailed deer and tapirs. Afterwards there is a large, refreshing pool to cool off in. There are also snack vendors, a restaurant and picnic areas on site. If visiting here, it’s worth hiring a car for the day but the entrance fee does include a minibus tour for those arriving by local transport (an hour's bus ride from Escuintla).
