Cuba's largest crocodile breeding farm is located in Boca de Guamá, founded in 1962. More than 4,000 specimens of the two main crocodile species – one of which the local endemic Cuban Crocodile – are on this site. The farm also keeps two endangered animal species: the jutía, a vegetarian tree rat whose females menstruate, holding the blood back with a tree leaf between their legs; and the manjuari, a fish with lungs, with an alligator head and a fish body, and which has not evolved for 3 million years.
 Admission includes a brief guided tour, with explanations of the crocodile's natural history and habits. You can participate in the crocodile show, take photos with the crocodiles as well as snapping shots of these impressive reptiles with their overwhelming size and power. At the entrance to Boca de Guamá, you'll find a number of restaurants, among which La Boca, all serving crocodile steaks.
