The cubs, which are an endangered species, immediately won over the hearts of employees at Zoologico de Vallarta, HispanicPRWire reports.
Their mother, Marisol, was reported to be in good health.
The success was followed four days later by the birth of two Bengal tigers by a cat called Tona, which gave workers reason to continue celebrations.
Also, Julieta, a lively Capuchin monkey, gave birth to a healthy baby.
The new cats bring the total number of births at the zoo this year to 64, including 14 felines and eight Caribbean flamingos, ensuring there is plenty to see for curious travellers in the area.
Puerto Vallerta is situated on the Pacific Ocean's Bahia de Banderas and nearly 50 per cent of its workforce is employed in travel related industries such as transportation and restaurants.
