Crococun Zoo in Puerto Morelos, Mexico

No zoom feature used when taking this photo! We were only a few feet away from these big guys and there was no barrier between us. Lucky for us, they had breakfast before we got there. Crococun in Puerto Morelos is an interactive zoo where the family can learn about the very cool, feathery, furry and scaly inhabitants of the Yucatan. Meet monkeys, lizards, crocodiles, tropical birds and more.
