We had the opportunity to visit the local crocodile park in Torromolinos.
This park is solely all about crocodiles.
You need to arrive relatively close to when the crocodile handlers are going to give the tour and speech because after this there isn’t any real need to hang around for long.
The talk itself is really interesting and informative. The guide talks about the various crocodiles they have there which is hundreds and how long they have been there.
The eldest one is in its 80’s and I’ve never seen anything so big. The guide stands next to it and almost antagonises it whilst tapping it in the mouth with a broom handle.
The park houses over 100 crocodiles of all ages, most of which are offspring of another crocodile in the same park.
You also get to see the crocodiles being fed as pieces of meat and birds are thrown all over the lagoon so you can see how fast the crocodiles move.
At the end of the tour you are able to hold a baby crocodile although this needs to be booked upon entry to the park and is of course an additional cost.
This is a great trip to take for a morning or an afternoon, this is not an all day trip though.
