Great experience
Nov 2021 • Couples
We decided to get a taxi here after reading a few reviews. When we arrived we were greeted and asked if we would like to look around or do the tour. It was 500 pesos for two people for the tour . Our guide was great. You could see how much he loved the animals and they loved him back. Its a great experience . He was extremely knowledgeable. If you are near by pop in and support this amazing sanctuary. We got a taxi from our hotel the rui vallarta. Just a note its not easy to get a taxi back so the taxi driver stayed and did the tour with us then took us back so taxi costs 1000 pesos return

Immerse with nature!
Nov 2021 • Family
We had such a great time today on this tour. Our kids loved learning about different species in Puerta Vallarta. We also got to hold a 2-year-old blind crocodile 🐊. Great price and money goes into rescued animals. There is also overweight squirrels that were rescued and I couldn't stop laughing. Only and hour tour if you have time to kill or pit stop! Thank you! -Happy Canadians 😊🐊🐊🐊

Fun adventure for the family.
Nov 2021
Took the wife and 4-year-old to the croc farm for a few fun hours of eco adventure. The place is the real deal, right in the middle of the the jungle. (So about getting there without a rental car... you will need a taxi to drive you in and wait for you because it's in the middle of the jungle. Our taxi from Marival Emotions was 600 pesos. The trail is bumpy and about 20 minutes off the main road.

Our guild was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. It's a beautiful spot with six or so gators. There are all kinds of birds, even nasty vultures, and other wild animals. Definitely good for kids, and we felt safe the whole time, even when Baby the 12 foot croc was eating raw chicken.

It was a great little break from the all inclusive events.

A True Ecotour!
Oct 2021 • Couples
This is what ecotourism should be about. Off the beaten track small reserve that runs only on the money brought in by visitors to the reserve. The two guides who own and run the crocodile sanctuary are very knowledgeable and are bilingual. The tour around the property took about 11/2 hours. Well worth the money! We used our GPS to fine the sanctuary. Once off the main highway it was a bumpy and muddy dirt road. We were driving our Honda Fit. I would not recommend driving a small vehicle along this road if there has been recent rain. If in doubt call the sanctuary and one of the guides may be able to meet you and drive you from the main road to the sanctuary. We would recommend this sanctuary to anyone interested in conservation.

A Fun Adventure
Jul 2021
great experience! You can tell that the staff really care about the animals and it's a very unique mix. Great for children to learn about eco system balance and not taking wild animals as pets.

ECOtourism at its best!
Jul 2021
4 km off main road is well worth the drive - pay the fee for the guided tour with Vet Dr. Alfredo and learn so much -- we and our kids loved it. Authentic eco-tourism - can see so many bird species in the mangrove as well as other species they are rehabilitating there. WORTH finding!!

Great family activity

Great place for small kids to see all sorts of animals, even touch baby cocodriles, will take no more than 1/2 hour. not as cheap as it used to be, but funds are used to rescue animals so that is ok.

Amazing experience!
Jan 2021 • Couples
My fiance and I loved this place! The marine biologist there was very patient with all our questions and all the animals are so well taken care of. My favorite part was being able to hold a baby crocodile!

The drive there was a but hidden but the taxi driver knew where it was and was willing to wait for us so we asked him to join us! I'm definitely going back! ❤
