Crocodile River Cruise
Come and visit a unique tourist destination in Costa Rica just two hours away from San José. Jungle Crocodile Safari offers a tour specially designed for adventurers and bird watchers, yet safe for the whole family. The adventure takes place on the Tárcoles River, one of four rivers flowing out into the Nicoya Peninsula, and home to one of the world’s largest crocodile populations in the wild with individuals up to fifteen feet long. In addition to the crocodiles, over fifty different kinds of birds can be seen on site, including the very rare scarlet macaw and a great variety of resident and migrant waterfowl. Iguanas and Jesus Cristo lizards are very common as well.
Jungle Crocodile Safari’s tour time is two hours. Our bilingual tourist guide offers expert orientation about the crocodiles and other associated wildlife. On the way downstream, the boat heads along the Estero Guacalillo, a most awesome mangrove ecosystem that features four different species of mangrove trees. In addition to sightseeing, photography and videotaping are permitted
Tourists receive a bottle of cold drinking water along with a brochure that shows all 56 bird species commonly sighted along the river.
We recommend wearing light cotton clothes, sneakers or sport sandals, and a cap or hat. Bringing binoculars, cameras and film and sunscreen is recommended. The use of inspect repellent is not necessary.
