This is part of the City tour we were into so we saw the place. We've seen mostly baby and adult crocodiles. Had the photo opportunity to hold a baby croc and a large phyton, after that, we were herded back to the van and move onward to the next city stop.

We had a city tour in our first day of stay in Palawan. My expectations were unsatisfied I am a little upset about few things. 1. One of their tour guide(staff) is unfriendly. She seems so impatient. 2. There are lots of mosquitoes. 3.At the souvenir section where you can take picture together with the young crocodiles, the people seems... More

Saw a lot of crocodiles, big ones, small ones, scary ones. It was a little unnerving how they keep the crocs, a little sketchy for my taste but it seemed to work although not sure how happy they crocodiles were. A little history about the place and they feature a pretty big crocodile, one of if not one of the... More

Nice stop while in Palawan. You get to see the crocodile farm, how youngsters are raised, get hold live snakes, see other reptiles and birds . . . great educational time for kids.

Not a bad place to visit while in Puerto Princesa. This breeding farm gives you a brief description of crocodile life and can see giant crocs. The guided tour will help you to know more about the life of crocs. Total 30 minutes and you have a chance to take photo with small crocs.

I don't know how this can be called a rescue centre. They hand you crocodile babies so you can take a picture. People throw them around make jokes with them and stress them out. Proper animal abuse. Animals are hold in terrible conditions!

Entrance free was only 40pesos. At first, I though that it was just a crocodile farm but a lot of things surprised me inside. The guided tour lasted only for about 10-15mins. It was just around the crocodile area. Then you are free to roam around and site see all other animals. They do have a lot to offer other... More
