What people are saying about Riviera Maya

We had been there with our little daughter (1.5 years old) and drove there with a rental car. It is very well signposted and can be found accordingly. The tour was great, our daughter loved the monkeys and other animals. The guide explained to us where the animals come from and what they have experienced. Every employee warmly walks around with the animals, cleaning is also done during opening hours. We are accompanied by a photographer who took photos of us with the animals. A great day out for the whole family that only takes a few hours.

It is best to see what is possible before each trip in order to plan accordingly. In retrospect, we would have booked even more activities than 3 out of 10. But it was new to us and we are super satisfied with the experiences included! We especially recommend the jungle tour, which takes you through the mangroves in a speedboat, and the flow ride! Not a problem even for beginners like me, as Jonathan (great guy) explains everything and shows how it works

If you are looking for a great experience Croco Cun is the place to visit. What a cool little gem this is. We enjoyed the interaction with all the animals and the people were all so friendly. The guides are very knowledgeable and can answer questions in both Spanish and English. And the best part is that this is not a regular zoo, it is a sanctuary for rescued animals. I would highly recommend.

A great experience to get closer to the animals, they are certainly in enclosed spaces, but the guide explains why they are there and why they need human protection. Those who can be released in kind are if possible.

What a wonderful experience! And our guide, Obniel, was great!
