Cocodrilo Park Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria

4.2
#11 of 83 in Parks in Gran Canaria
A home for abandoned exotic pets, Cocodrilo Park Gran Canaria is a refuge for a wide variety of species. The money you spend on a ticket goes exclusively to provide the animals with quality food and veterinary care. Crocodiles make a splash in the ponds, and these scaly residents draw most visitors. However, you'll also see parrots, other reptiles, primates, and a few tigers occupying the grounds.

  • I love this place. Free bus is great but this time I went with my elderly mother and we took a taxi. Brilliant cos we got to join in the bird feeding in the aviary at 11am. It is always fun at 12 when...  more »
  • Read previous reviews and wasn't sure about this park, but definitely glad we chose to visit! There's a free bus service to and from the park, picking up from various pre-set points. Between 10am-11am...  more »
  • It good enough. It looks as if it was all the time in the building. It is a pity that there is no frames with animals, to which it would be possible to enter (as in monkey park in Tenerife). Disgusting food in the bar. I do not recommend.

  • My boyfriend and I went to Cocodrilo Park last week and were more than pleased with the experience. The most important aspect of this park is that it is not a zoo but a shelter for animals from illegal traffic! It does not only have Crocodiles but also lots of other species. We went there with the free bus from Maspalomas and the four hours the bus schedule gave us for exploring the park seemed perfect (even though we usually spend more time in zoos). We really liked the design park and enjoyed the shows. Especially the interaction with the animals was great, although we felt the way they treated the crocodile was not optimal. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. This park is truly different from all we have got to know so far (which are a lot). It seemed to us that Cocodrilo Park offers a good home for all the animals that live in it and a great experience for its visitors. Fully recommended!
  • A pretty fun place for such little price. We paid €9 entry, and for this got access to the entire park and also the bird feeding, lion feeding and money feeding, all in a 2 hour period. The park is smaller than a commercial zoo, but when you take your time to enjoy, you genuine enjoy it. Lovely staff too, with clean facilities and very reasonable food and drink (water just €1 too!!).
  • Amazing place to spend time. One of the best place to visit on island. No matter if You solo or with family. It's better to go there from the morning as You can see all the animal events. This place is a must on Gran Canaria.
  • Great park. Loads of croco's and also other animals who are illegally imported and saved. Cool animal interaction shows.
  • Great place, and an excellent way to spend half of a day. We drove here from Taurito and it was really easy to find. I kind of want to rate it down to four stars due to all of the construction work that was in progress during our visit, but we had so much fun here I just couldn't do it. Lots of great attractions, I fully recommend watching them feed the Crocodiles and Tigers. They have a lot of exotic birds in their aviary. Much of the park is well shaded too, so if you want to get out of the sun for a bit, this is a good way to do it. They do have a restaurant, it's reasonably priced and nice enough, but the food choices are a little limited.
