What you can expect

Explore a river teeming with crocodiles, birds, and reptiles for an incredible experience in the Costa Rican jungle. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready as you meet the incredible variety of wildlife that makes these tropical waters their home.

Known for its abundance of crocodiles that can grow up to 15 feet (4.5 m) long, the Tarcoles River offers a thrilling opportunity for you to enjoy a vibrant Central American ecosystem. Along the way, you can spot more than 50 species of birds like the colourful scarlet macaw, as well as iguanas and common basilisks—known as Jesus lizards for their ability to run on the surface of the water.

During your journey, listen as your guide shares information about the crocodiles and the environment that surrounds them. Once you arrive downstream, you can visit an extensive mangrove system with 4 different types of mangrove trees for yet another nature-lover's treat.
