Description

boat rides through mangroves filled with crocodiles and turtles. MXP 150 pp

boat ride takes you through a mangrove tunnel where you see many crocodiles, turtles, and many different types of birds. it ends at a restaurant called La Tovara, a small place with decently priced food and beer and a cool rope swing to jump into the clear blue water (no crocodiles).

whole thing takes about 2 hours, including about an hour at the restaurant. for an extra MXP 70 pp they'll take you to a crocodilero where you can see more crocodiles and a few other animals.

cool experience, definitely recommend it

This tour is one of the coolest things we’ve done in Mexico, they offer two different tours:
La Tovara- MX $200/person to boat down the river and spend an hour at a safe swimming hole that also serves drinks.

Cocodrilio- MX 250/ person takes you further down the river, squeezing under a bridge, to the cocodrilio zoo. Absolutely worth it, the zoo also has a small swimming hole, and a variety of animals on display, the habitats are a little small especially by US standards but it’s cool to see the crocodiles of every size

On both tours you’ll see wild crocodiles, rare endemic birds, and turtles

This is a better place than the other location to catch a boat. Many people come here and it is set up for tourist. The boats are large and can take approx 8-10. The other place you need 4 people to ride a boat. We arrived here and jump onto a boat without having to wait, we were 2 people. 200 pesos per person we saw many crocodile, birds and turtles. Take you swimsuit for a swim in an area without crocodiles! They also drop you off to a small zoo 20 pesos

Report Check-In

We recommend this trip. We were sceptical but we gave it a try and were happy, especially our kids. We saw lots of turtles, birds, and a few crocs. The croc zoo was a little depressing due to the size of the cages, especially for the poor panthers. The restaurant was good. Try the shrimp burritos! Swimming in the pool was nice way to cool off before returning to the parking lot.
Also, highly recommend the banana bread being sold at the stalls just outside the parking lot!
