We arrived at Crocolandia a little early in fact we arrived before they open. Crocolandia is managed by a foundation that promotes wildlife conservation. The first thing that we noticed was the cleanliness of the park, I have been to several similar parks in the Philippines that some or most of them charge far more, Crocolandia I would say is one of the cleanest. The park’s main attraction is Lapu-Lapu a 50years old and 15feet crocodile. There are other small animals, birds and reptiles in the park, they even have a couple of tarsiers and bear cats. They also have a clean reasonably priced restaurant.
