CROCODILE HUNTER ADVENTURE
SEE ALSO FROM
PLAYA DEL CARMEN AND
ADULTS: $200.00 KIDS
We invite you to experience
one of your life's most exciting adventures, as you cruise through
the wetlands of the Yum Balam Biosphere searching for giant crocodiles.
This is not a farm, they live here in the wild. You will get to
see and even likely help capture these magnificent creatures as part
of an ongoing crocodile research project.
From our boats you will feel
the thrill and the emotion of participating in a crocodile research
project, working with two to nine-foot long wild crocodiles. The
adventure of a lifetime!
You will be picked up from your Cancun Hotel at
approximately 1:30 PM and go approximately 3
hours north to the Yum Balam Biosphere. Yum Balam is located on the
Caribbean Coast of Mexico, and includes Isla Holbox on the northern
tip of the Yucatan peninsula north of Cancun.
It is one of the largest protected areas in the
Mexican Caribbean at over 380,000 acres, and is a UNESCO world
heritage site. Here you will board our boats, and embark on your
adventure! This trip is coordinated by the official agency in charge
of crocodile research and conservation in the Yum Balam preserve.
