An axolotario in the heart of downtown Mexico City
Don’t miss our axolotario, with the fascinating axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) at the most centric spot in Mexico City. These amphibians have many peculiarities that science is still trying to understand and replicate, we have a lot to learn from them! So, when you visit them, show them your respect, because these animals were even venerated as a god: the god Xólotl, brother of Quetzalcóatl.
Admission to the axolotario is FREE.
Fray Bernardino de Sahagún recalls the legend in which Xólotl refused to die, successively fleeing from the gods.
