Cocodrilo Park is a great mix of zoo and animal rescue centre with a huge range of animals and lots to do and see for the kids. It's well worth the drive or the free bus trip. 

Cocodrilo Park zoo is Gran Canaria’s main animal rescue centre for exotic animals. It has tigers saved from zoos, chimpanzees confiscated from smugglers and a huge range of other exotic creatures from ostriches to desert foxes that it has adopted over the years.

When you visit, your entrance fee contributes to keeping all the rescued animals at Cocodrilo Park fed and happy.

It also has the biggest group of crocodiles in Spain and puts on daily crocodile feeding and handling shows. Kids can also handle a wide range of tame and harmless animals like lizards.

Other highlights at Cocodrilo Park include the daily bird feedings when all the parrots and exotic ibis in its huge walk-through aviary are fed at the same time.

Cocodrilo Park is in east Gran Canaria but puts on a free bus every day from both Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas, and from Taurito and Puerto Rico.

This attraction is closed on Saturdays.
