You'll be able to have fun around with just 40php entrance fee!My first time to see crocodiles in different sizes. There were also shops within the center where you can buy souvenirs at a low cost.

When you first enter the park it looks very nice. But then it starts going down hill from there. As we started the tour we saw that maintenance was not at the top of their list. But what was at the top of their list was sell, sell ,sell what ever they can.

I pretty much enjoyed picture taking in this area though it was really hot if you do it in the afternoon. Try also their Crocodile SIsig for 180 pesos. You can also hold a baby croc and have a photo op with him/her. Just be careful. :D

It was raining during my visit and I realised the animals especially the birds do not have any shelter at all in their enclosures. Hence, they were all shivering wet in the... More

The place should be well funded by the government including upgrading their facilities in order to protect the wild life of Palawan!

We took our son here last January and it really was a bummer. We saw a bunch of crocodiles and was led to a botanical garden with animal labels everywhere. When we got inside the mini forest/botanical garden, tried to follow the confusing arrows along the path and saw several empty cages, we got a little bit scared when we... More

It's not as big as a zoo, but there were enough interesting wild life to view and appreciate-there are bearcats, talking mynah birds, hornbills (toucans), and other denizens of the island rescued from a certain fate.

Its a low budget zoo more or less, has a couple of bearcats and sea eagle that are native along with crocodiles, minah birds and some others. its nice to see that they are trying to conserve but its nothing like the US, still...
