Tangle with a snake, feed a peccary, walk through a crocodile den, and be accosted by an affectionate spider monkey at this 150-acre nature reserve, home to reptiles and mammals indigenous to the Yucatán, all rescued from the wild or from illegal owners. Veterinary students guide 90-minute tours, during which visitors can hold a baby croc; proceeds fund work on behalf of wild animals.
