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.

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!

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.

    Thank you for the feedback about our location and staff, RWilkins. Cocodrilo really is a look into a soon forgotten world. We are proud to help conserve it and thankful for your support.
    We would appreciate a little more detail what we could do better in the future and what was missing to make you fully satisfied. Thank you for your suggestions!
