If you have young kids, I highly recommend this zoo. Our guide was very informative and was very nice. My 3 year old... loved it, it's a good activity between all the beaches and pools. He got to hold a crocodile, a snake and a hairless dog, and also was kissed by a bird, he would still talk about it after he is back from his trip that took place 4 months ago. As an adult, I likes it too, just seeing so many native species and also get informed with a real live guide made it more more

This definitely is an unforgettable experience. Especially if you don't have any of this animals free living in your... home country. The enimals get treated very well. If you buy any food to feed the animals it's all natural. Can highly recommend more

Cozy, little zoo with knowledgeable English speaking guides. Great way to pass 1-2 hours outside of resort.

We had a small group and a great guide. I have never been this close to snakes, alligators and such. Very knowledgeable... guide with great information. It's about 1h long and priced okay. My 5 and 6 year old kids had a great time as more

Lovely place. All animals are rescued from captivity and illegal pet trade so cannot be released (and very well looked... after). Tour is very informative, useful to know which snakes might kill you in Mexico! And the interaction with the animals is wonderful for any animal lover, you may not see the monkeys as they are wild and just come back for food, but that's probably for the more

Really overpriced for what you actually get. 1 hour and you are limited to your tour group's pace. My wife and I like... to enjoy zoo's and we can spend hours and hours at them. So we felt like the experience was rushed. There is a similar zoo where I live that is interactive and costs MUCH less than this. Definitely a tourist grab. With the time limit, guided tour and a tip expected it should not be as much as it is. Still, I really enjoyed it and recommend this experience to anyone who loves animals. Prices should be more

Great place, got there as they opened and only 4 of us in the group for the tour. Guide that showed us around and knew... her facts. Got to handle some crocs, snakes and some parrots. Definitely worth a visit if you have a few hours to kill. Also a taxi rank more

This place is a true hidden gem. It's not offered by the tour guides in the hotels so no one really heard about it... unless they do some research on their own. It is beautiful and the hands on part of the zoo is quite the experience. Unlike anything else in the states. Our guide, Carla, was amazing and very informative. We learned a lot and had a great time together. My husband and I got to hold crocodiles, pet special dogs, feed and pet deer, walk among the crocodiles, feed monkeys and parrots, and see many other animals. Highly recommend this zoo. Just take a taxi over and purchase admission there yourselves. They're friendly and provide a great experience. (Make sure to put on bug spray, they sell it in the store and in the front. We didn't and highly regretted it. Lots of bugs since it is, after all... in a jungle)read more

In recent times, public attention turned towards animals in captivity, and Zoo’s aren’t the exception.

Croco Cun did not start as a zoo, however, our Riviera Maya destination ecological needs, have turned us into a very peculiar one. Most of the specimens have come to our home as donations, as well as rescues or seizures that the environmental authorities have placed under our care.

The residents of our zoo play an important role in the fauna conservation through education and interaction with our visitors.

El mame de la conservación

Sin el afán de ofender llamo (conservacionistas de sillón) a aquellos que tienen una gran preocupación sobre el medio ambiente, la fauna, el deterioro de los ecosistemas y el cambio climático, pero carecen de criticidad y como vulgarmente se dice “se suben al tren del mame”

A quien le dan pan que llore

Recientemente la destrucción de las selvas durante la construcción de zonas urbanas ha llevado a que grupos de monos araña en Quintana Roo queden expuestos al contacto humano, perdiendo el miedo y aventurándose cada vez más a la ciudad.

We are located on the 307 highway very close to Puerto Morelos which is a peaceful village on the Mayan Riviera, great to experience the genuine Yucatan. Puerto Morelos makes an excellent base if you’re looking for some place quieter than glitzy hotspots like Cancun or Playa del Carmen. Government eco-reserve designations protect the reef and mangroves, and the village itself, from development. Outdoor options range from thrilling jungle and diving adventures to serene bike rides or moped explorations

  • Taxi:
    Fast but expensive option.
  • Bus:
    At Cancún´s or Playa del Carmen´s bus station, take the bus-line MAYAB and specify you’re getting off at Croco Cun so they charge the correct fee.
  • Mini van:
    At Cancún´s bus station, in front of the main doors, crossing the parking lot, take the PLAYA EXPRESS minivan. Tell the driver you are getting off at Croco Cun so he charges the correct fee. This minivan can also be taken at Playa del Carmen on Calle 2 between Av.20 Norte and Av.25 Norte.

    • Getting to Croco Cun Zoo from Cancún by bus or minivan (costs around 25 pesos per person), the driver will drop you out in front of the zoo on the federal highway. Please be carefull when you crossing.
    • To get to Cancún´s bus station from the Cancún hotel zone, take the bus (Turicun or Autocar) with RUTA 1 on the window. (it must include Downtown, Av. Tulúm destinations) and ask the driver to drop you out on Tulum Av. near the bus station. It costs around 12 pesos per person.
