  • My fiance and I loved this place! The marine biologist there was very patient with all our questions and all the animals are so well taken care of. My favorite part was being able to hold a baby...  more »

  • Beautiful and remote place, but just outside of town. It's mostly a mangrove swamp, lots of birds and other wildlife. Cesar is a great guide who spoke perfect English, but more than that he is passionate about ecology and how all of the pieces fit together. Do bring bug repellent, it's a swamp... If you forget they have some to sell.
  • I highly recommend El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary. For all ages, it is educational and engaging. The facility is completely supported by donations and tourism so no government funding at this time.🤞 Alfredo, whom is Vet from Guadalajara, gave the tour with much knowledge and enthusiasm. You can tell he's passionate about their purpose there. If you're fortunate to be there at the right time, you just may get to hold a baby Crocodile. Alfredo explained the important connection between the crocodile and the mangrove trees. It was all fascinating in understanding the circle of life and what each creatures purpose is. For only 200 peso highly worth the visit down the long and bumpy dirt road. There are other rescue animals there besides crocodiles, but their main purpose is to help save and repopulate the Crocodile. Through education and understanding we can better appreciate this beautiful and intriguing creature.
