“Love this place”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is not the biggest place but I have to tell you, they do an excellent job. The place was clean, the staff friendly. It was decorated nicely. Lots of crocs which my son loved but other animals too. I think what they are doing here is great. You can purchase bananas to feed the monkies. It was a bit of a drive from Maspalomas but not that far and I believe you can get a bus. All around a nice place to spend some time.

“Great day out”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Went to Cocodrilo park in Aug 2012 and had a great day out with my wife and 3 year old son. the park is off the beaten track but well worth the travel, They take in the croc like the RSPCA do in the UK and are also not funded by the Island. they do a show / feeding where you can have your photo taken with the baby croc free of charge on your own camera/phone. There is also a zoo area on the park with a few diffrent animals and turltles and mine and my son's favorite the Monkeys which you can buy banana's for, And the baby monkey splashed my son, which he still finds funny to this day. Overall well worth the travel to the park and will return again.

“Adorable crocs!”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

A charming santuary with plenty of animals to see and a worthwhile cause. Off the beaten track but well worth the trip.

“Excellent Day”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Very good family run park, aminals are well looked after. They take in animals like our RSPCA in england. The monkeys are amazing, they hold their hands out for bananas which can be bought for 1 euro a bunch. The crocs are unreal, there is one that is 67 years of age and weighs 1.3 tonne. Well worth a trip will go again, it's not expensive at 9.90 euros each. People should go to support what they do. Ideal for couples and families.

“great day”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Loved the fact all the animals were taken in to be looked after ,as there owners could not keep them for what ever reason, and your entrance fee went to the up keep of the animals and not just for profit .
