However, when Paul learns that a legendary monster-croc (“El Diablo”) has terrorized the countryside for decades, he vows not to return to Florida until the dangerous beast has been captured. Ashley is in for a shock when her boyfriend, Chris Gillette, takes time off from his South American crocodile research project to surprise her in Mazatlan.

It’s a gripping Mexican finale when Paul goes into uncharted waters for a final face-off with “El Diablo.”
