With the goal of promoting tourism to the city, the government has created the Circuito Chilpancingo Azul, through which you can visit the new Palacio de Gobierno (the former suffered severe damage during an earthquake and had to be demolished), Museo Regional de Guerrero, Tribunal Superior de Justicia and the churches of San Mateo and Santa María de la Asunción. Additionally, for those who enjoy contact with nature and interactive learning, the city has the Museo de Niño (also called La Avispa) and the Zoochilpan Zoo. Don’t forget to visit one of nature’s deepest wonders, the Cacahuamilpa Grotto. ZOOLÓGICO ZOOCHILPAN This zoo has all the necessary services and exhibits where you can find local species like the puma, jaguar and Gila monster; besides exotic animals like the ñu or African antelope, the watusi and howling monkey, whose vocal cords are so powerful that its howls can be heard 4 Km. away; it also has an aquarium, a reptile area and temporary art exhibits.
