Crococun began in 1985 as a commercial breeding farm intending to sell crocodile skins, but now Crocodile is a Park & Regional Zoo in the Riviera Maya.

Crococun it is a great place to see the local wildlife. Venture into the natural tropical forest and confront the prehistoric crocodiles, the rulers of this sacred land and witness their unpredictable personalities. The journey continues with a welcome from the friendly monkeys, a view of the diversity of snakes and the other exciting surprises that await.
Get a guide at the entrance (tip him at the end) and you can hold crocodiles, monkeys, boas, baby deer, and parrots.

This is a great place to take children and perfectly safe since most of the animals are in large pens and exhibits. Everything is outside in the lush jungle. The tour consists of a walk down a winding jungle path as your guide talks about the animals and answers your questions. Every so often he stops to pick one up to show you something. Be sure to pet the hairless Mayan dog. It feels sort of like a pig. Maya used to eat them, was a good dishes. Cover yourself with bug repellent before getting out of the car.

A good time is easy to have at Crococun, and they have a snack bar and souvenir stand for mementos (no crocodile luggage). So if your passing by and you have an hour, stop, and enjoy this adventure.
