Davao Crocodile Park Reviews
Fun with Crocks Jul 04, 2010
The Davao Crocodile Park is a nice, clean, and modern design park. Other exotic animals like raptors, monkeys, bearcats, snakes, birds, and other reptiles makes it a great tourist destination.
At only 200p per person it was a great value.
You're able to get up close and personal with the animals. I regreat that I went late in the day, it turned dark much faster than I thought, wasn't able to take as many pictures as I wanted.
Open everyday from Monday to Sunday at 8:00 AM to 7 PM
Regular show schedule is every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The show starts at 4:45 PM.
You can ride a taxi from downtown, it is a 10-minute ride from the city.

Davao Crocodile Park May 31, 2009
The last time I was in the park was last March when we showed a friend from Manila who came to visit us in Davao for the first time.
From Gaisano Mall, we hailed a taxi, passed through the diversion road and to the Riverfront Drive in Ma-a. The drive was just about 10 minutes.
FYI - for those coming from the airport and would like to go directly to the park, you can ride the Air-condioned AllAboard Jeep from Airport to Davao Crocodile Park.
