BC: Let's Xplore Costa Rica Together!
FC: Palo Verde Crocodile Safari
1: Palo Verde is one of our favourite and most popular tours. This adventure is a MUST and suitable for all ages! Enjoy a covered 2-hour riverboat cruise on the Tempisque River bordering the Palo Verde National Park, which protects over 33,000 acres and is known for its ecological diversity, preserving wetlands and providing a refuge for a myriad of wildlife. Over 300 bird species have been recorded. Be on the lookout and ready to shoot that one-of-a-kind Kodak moment. We regularly see howler monkeys, crocodiles, huge iguanas, white faced monkeys and a myriad of herons, storks, kingfishers etc. After the river cruise you'll enjoy a traditional family style Costa Rican lunch. A side trip to the pottery town of Guaitil is available as well. Guaitil is renowned for the best selection of original, hand-crafted ceramics in all shapes and sizes. Guaitil artisans will demonstrate the traditional Chorotegan Indian methods of creating, decorating and painting the beautiful pieces that are perfect for a gift or personal souvenir.
