El Remate is a quiet village, and most visitors head to the small bar at their hotel or hostel to chat with fellow travelers. Some, however, head out to the lake to see the crocodiles by the light of a high-powered flashlight or headlamp. Two-hour tours, which can be arranged through your hotel, are headed by a guide, who will scan the shore and inlets for the red reflection of the crocodiles' eyes. If you're lucky, they won't submerge as you slowly approach. The cost is between Q150 and Q240.
