It is good to observe that the Cuban's are attempting to help the Cuban Crocodiles survive. It was on the way to the Bay of Pigs Museum, and worth the stop

The aim is to breed Cuban crocodiles for release but presumably to get funds they keep smaller ones in pens along with other reptiles. Pay 1 CUC to feed the larger crocs! Good grounds for bird watching.

very small place with very sad dirty animals. It is cheap, the time spend on it is what I regret about.

It’s exactly what it is... crocodile farm, lots of them and you can see them up close and personal. You can also feed them over the fence and take a picture with mini crocodiles.

Crocodile farm keeping crocodiles of all possible ages. Oldest ones are approximately 60 years old. You can feed them for small payment. It's definitely worth it to visit it.
