Meaningful experience in Cocodrilo

I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering in Cocodrilo. Our hosts were very welcoming. Cocodrilo is a very unique place where I learned a lot about local marine ecology and conservation projects taking place in the town that focus on community engagement. This is a great program to support and wonderful work is being done there.

Great activity

The tortuga monitoring was very interesting and I learned a lot. Reynaldo was a fantastic guide and very kind. Cocodrillo is a wonderful old town with great swimming and few cars--a real glimpse into another way of life.

Cocodrillo eco-tourism - a once in a lifetime experience!

Where to begin! Volunteering in Cocodrillo for a week was such a unique experience and once in a life time opportunity. The project was well run, the daily excursions/snorkel and dive trips were so wonderful and varied, and the project leaders were kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating in every way. Cuba is a special place regardless of where you visit, but there is no place like Cocodrillo!

Coral, community, and Cuban culture!

My week spent in Cocodrilo was like a dream: the leaders were knowledgeable, sweet, and engaging; the town was a pleasure to explore; and the ocean was storybook! I fully recommend visiting Cocodrilo!
