ZOO, SHELTER OR SANCTUARY?
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.
Wild life, conservation, tourism & more…
HOW TO GET HERE
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
Fast but expensive option.
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.
