Once a crocodile farm and now an impressive collection of some of Mexico’s most unique wildlife, the Croco Cun Zoo houses a variety of animals, many of which are endangered species. With a special emphasis on conservation, the zoo features animals important to Mexico, such as the hairless dog and spider monkey.
Book an hour-long guided tour that takes you through the park's guided jungle paths while providing in-depth information about the various animals, including white-tailed deer, macaw parrots, and boa constrictors. There are multiple opportunities for photos, so don't forget your camera.
The zoo is located just south of the Cancun airport. Car service is conveniently found from Puerto Morelos (the nearest town), Cancun, and Playa del Carmen. Good for families, the zoo's cafe offers lunch and snacks.
