La Boca de Guamá

La Boca de Guamá Review

From the wooden walkways of La Boca de Guamá, south of the town of Australia, you can observe some 3,000 crocodiles. Custodian Emilio Hernández will relate how Celia Sánchez, Castro's most intimate companion and adviser, was determined to restore the failing crocodile population. He'll also fill you in on some facts: these naturally aggressive creatures can jump 1 meter (3 feet) high and run as fast as a horse for 80 meters (264 feet), reaching speeds of up to 60 kph (37 mph). There's also a restaurant on the premises.
