Quick stop to walk to the bridge and see the huge crocodiles. Around 2 restaurants and souvenir shops to have a cold pipa (coconut) or breakfast.

Given the warnings of petty theft, would highly recommend paying to park (especially if traveling with all your luggage from the airport). We paid a few dollars to guarantee that our stuff was still waiting for us in our car (recommended to us by family)....More

Very cool to see these prehistoric looking creatures in their habitat...if you're traveling alone or in a large group, it's really worth the stop!

We didn't see any, but Caracara National Park is just down the highway and is supposed to be a great spot to see birds.
