Huatulco Crocodiles and Turtles Tour

The Huatulco Crocodiles and turtles tour is a great mix of adventure and nature. It shows both the crocodiles and turtles in their native environment, and allows you to view them at a safe distance. There are many other animals and birds you will see on the tour.

Crocodiles Excursion

You will be picked up at your resort or hotel and brought to the town of La Ventanilla. Here, a group of families strive to restore the crocodiles habitat. With Crocodiles being endangered in the area, the efforts to keep the area preserved is a worthy one. The eco tour factor is definitely present in this excursion.
