I Loved This!
Mar 2020
Thought this would be a bit of a wasted morning, and we actually only went because our boat trip through the mangroves was cancelled due to a lack of diesel - how wrong I was! It was a fantastic place. The fact that you can pay a small fee and feed the crocodiles - or watch others - made this visit standout. You can get really close to the creatures and their mighty jaws but you are safely behind the fence (or up on the viewing bridge). You can also stroll around the park and watch the crocodile behaviour, such as when one male took exception to another and suddenly pounced on it in a flurry of huge splashes. Great stuff. There are also tree rats and iguanas to see and the park itself is very picturesque fr just a stroll around for the trees and flowers. There are, of course, also many shops and stalls for souvenirs, but you only need to look if you want to, nobody hassles you. I'm so glad there was no diesel that day and we got to see this place instead :-)

Good to see

It is interesting to see and learn about crocodiles. You can really feed them if you want. You can really eat them as well if you want. Nice experience overall.

I enjoyed every minute of our stay here. This is amazing place, come and visit it by all means! I regret our guide gave us only one hour here.

Interesting trip to the Criadero
Dec 2019
We were guided by a local bici-taxi driver, Ranier, who explained the Criadero and gave us a memorable drive there and back from Playa Larga. He was a warm, friendly person as well, adding to the experience.

Good place to see Cuban Crocodiles
Apr 2019 • Couples
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

Great day with the Crocs
Feb 2019 • Friends
Really cool to see enormous reptiles snatch a chunk of meat with lightning fast movements. Chances to get a picture with a small crocodile, but like anywhere, bring Pesos. We did the boat ride to the Taino village and that was exciting in itself. The walk around the village was informative and another reminder of civilizations lost due to colonialism. (Thanks Chris) There are some catfish that lurk next to the bar, if you pour a bit of cerveza on the surface they will poke up from the depths. Good bar trick. It seems to prefer Cerveza Cristal as do I! Had a great day overall

Thousands of Crocodiles
Feb 2019 • Couples
Here You can see thousands of crocodiles in all ages. A couple of hundred are set out in the swamp every year. If You are lucky, You will also have the opportunity to hold one small crocodile. Good strong coffe can also be provided along with cold beverages and rum.

Not a fan of zoo's!
Jan 2019 • Friends
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.

Good trip from Playa Larga
Feb 2018 • Couples
We rented bikes in Playa Larga in order to visit the crocodile farm. The ride took us bit less then one hour of relaxed biking. On the site we discovered a possibility of visiting a replica of indigenous indian village which can be visited with a boat trip right from the crocodile farm. I really recommend visiting this village because of nice water canals and lake, also it's nice to see for little bit of history. The farm itself is actually something between a little zoo and botanical garden with speciality in crocodiles...which we discovered later on that they are literally farmed for future procesing into a food and other stuff, so it's nothing like ecopark for saving crocodiles.. that explained the poor living conditions of tens of crocodiles on a small area. There is also a restaurant nearby, where you can taste some crocodile meat. Maybe i'd do it if i knew this is the "only" reason why the farm exists..haha
