If you have ever fancied yourself as Crocodile Dundee then the crocodile park in Torremolinos should be on your list of Costa del Sol attractions to visit.
Just a short distance from CLC World the park is a place where you can learn more about these fascinating animals and get up close and personal with them, you can even hold one and have your picture taken!
The largest of the crocs at the park is Paco, also known as Big Daddy, who is the largest crocodile in Europe according to park officials measuring in at over four metres long.
Crocodiles have survived for more than 50 million years and Paco and his family will be waiting to meet you in Torrmolinos here on the Costa del Sol!
Once inside, you can get as close as 2 metres away from them and learn all about their survival and the incredible hunting techniques that have been keeping these animals alive since the Dinosaur age.
The Crocodile Park is open all year round and there is an informative guided tour that lasts approximately two hours.
In addition to the crocodiles there is plenty of other wildlife in the park including other species of reptiles and birds such as American turtles, Australian Emus, mandarin ducks and mallards.
