  • Free admission. There is a nice lady who made us admire a crocodile! Also there is a nursery of plants, those that are then used within the resort. Also present were many cats!

  • The structure next to the greenhouse of plants is an old aqueduct, now disused. In the greenhouse are grown aloe plants and other plants and flowers for the gardens of several villages on the island. It struck me that are grown in old Tin boxes and disused bathtubs are also used. You can see a crocodile so close it's not every day. Carribe approaches invoked by Mrs., as if it were a poodle and can be seen at close range, without any protection. Carribe is called and the launches of the food but in such quantity that does not feel satisfies, otherwise it falls asleep and the tourists then they can't see. Wonderful to be able to admire Carribe and his little place in a tub. You can also see sea turtles, vacated and also a specimen of iguana that apparently also caress. Careful how you touch it because you might get bitten, I haven't touched it, but another man who was in my village and was bitten. The visit is free, but we left a tip. Mrs. He also donated of the leaves of aloe by putting on pinches of moschitos at and a bit of benefit we had.
