If you are really into crocodiles, nice to see. But do not expect to see them in anything resembling their natural habitat. They are kept in large plastic tubs, in some dozens together. The adjacent zoo might have been nice at one point but maintenance is not a priority in such a poor country, so it is gradually falling apart... More

First close encounter with crocodiles. Took a tricycle to this rescue centre and thoroughly enjoyed it. Gladly, or unfortunately for the crocodiles, their mouths were bound with duct tape. We were able to take pictures holding the reptiles. It was comforting to see how much the tour guides cared about the reptiles, stroking them, gently preparing them for photographs.

This part of our visit took about 1 and half hours. Part of our city tours. There is fee to get in but its not expensive less than 100 pesos, I can't remember exactly. You get to see many indigenous animal living in Puerto Princesa including mynah, wild pigs, crocs, etc.

Its an average place to visit, they have couple of animals like a cheetah, cobra (big snake) and a couple of more animals. Over priced for what you see. You can skip this if you want

A place they're growing crocodiles and other animals. Placed in a forest. The show of the crocodiles in some ages teach a lot about their life. Than to see all other animal is just awesome.

The crocodile cages looked deplorable but to see the 16-foot, 60-year old monster was amazing and a bit scary. It was so big. A short walk around the forest was relaxing.

If you are interested in knowing more about the Palawan Wildlife, head to the PWRCC. I've been there many times and I keep on coming back when there is a chance.

Educational! A small entrance fee for some facts on salt water & fresh water crocodiles. The skins & bones of RIO, a large old crocodile younger than LOLONG is displayed at the entrance & start the tour. More crocodiles, young & old, fresh & salt, big & small are on display. A cause worthy of support.
