Rob’s Ramblings: Crocodile Tour

I just had the opportunity to visit “Cocodrilos del Nayar” near Las Varas. This is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for something else to do in Jaltemba Bay.

The cocodrilario is located at km 77.5 just north of the El Capomo cut-off, and south of Las Varas. Watch for the Cocodrillos signs on a blind curve.

Vicente, Kathryn and their staff will give you a 45-minute tour with information on the rescue of their cocodrilos, as well as interesting facts on their habits, feeding and almost everything about the lives of their residents. You can even pet a baby cocodrilo.

At $30 pesos for two people, this is a great deal. School groups are welcome to visit the site for free.

    We were there in April and we found out that they also rescue large dogs . The 4 or 5 dogs were just laying down in the little show room looking very happy .
