The kids (3,7,8) had nice few hours at Crocodrilo Park. However the cages are small and some of the animals look less than well (kids did not notice). Monkeys were not moving at all, raccoon clearly suffering and the chimpanzees were some of the saddest beings I've seen. The kids did not like the way the big dog was kept... More

We caught the free bus on a Monday from Puerto Rico to the zoo. It was a long 45 minutes and having arrived at 11am, we rushed round trying to see everything in time to catch the bus back at 2pm. It really wasn't enough time to be able to appreciate this little zoo but the alternative was a 100€... More

Plenty of variety here. Our son enjoyed it. The tigers were quite active. The animal encounters are great for the kids. It was a bit cold for the crocs who were pretty docile on the day

Before you rock up on a Saturday morning, make sure your assumption that it would be open is the case. It is closed on a Saturday :(

We saw a billboard up advertising Cocodrilo Park Zoo by the side of the motorway so decided to give it a go. We found it online and then head out. We did get lost finding it because the postcode on the website couldn't be found on our satnav. When we eventually found it, there wasn't much parking available but managed... More

We visit here every year...There is a free bus which goes to the zoo from most resorts..or we hire a car and go on a quieter day. You can easily spend a good 4 hours here and the cafe is fantastic value and very nice indeed. As other reviewers have stated "it is not palmitos park" yes that's right. There... More
