  • At the time of our visit at the farm was only one crocodile and 10 cm hatchling monitor lizard/jaguany. I was not quite clear why the place is called crocodile farm:) well if you are really bored, you can visit this place as well. better in the sea for a swim once again.

Where to stay in Cayo Largo

Most accommodations on Cayo Largo sit on the south coast, not far from the beach. These consist of resorts, hotels, and private villas--expect a swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, and complimentary breakfast. If you're after a slightly different scene, you can stay at a bed and breakfast at the center of the island, or an eco-lodge in the north.
