Coba Mayan Ruins
save place
Wild, Wild Crocodile
They jump. But I didn't know that when I was lying on the ramshackle dock with my face two feet from his nose. Just before you arrive at the ruins of Coba, a half hour into the jungle west of Tulum, there is a sprawling lake. Stop when you see the dock that you really wouldn't trust in a heavy wind and, instead of walking out onto the dock, walk across the street to the little concrete house. A lady will greet you and ask if you want to see the crocodile. Unbelievably, she will fetch some chicken and lead you out over the marshy green water where, on a warm sunny day, you can watch her feed the crocodile. His name is Negro. Take plenty of pictures, but don't get this close. Cost: 10 pesos
