Croco Cun Zoo

For a close encounter with local wildlife, Croco Cun Zoo enables you to interact with the creatures housed on their facility.

For the nature lover, visitors come in close contact with local animals during a 65-75 minute interactive tour led by an English-speaking guide. Feed monkeys, snakes and even crocodiles while safely supervised. Though not a local species, you can talk to the two resident parrots.

Visit the on-site cafeteria if you find yourself hungry after all the excitement. There is a picnic area, children's playground and wi-fi offered. If you'd like to take home a souvenir, a gift shop full of items awaits you.
