Monteverde to Manuel Antonio Crocodile Viewing on the Tarcoles River

Monteverde to Manuel Antonio Crocodile Viewing on the Tarcoles River


Conexiones Turísticas continues to innovate and come up with great ways for you to enjoy tours on the way to your next destination. That's why we have added the Adventure Connection with a stop at the Tarcoles River for a Crocodile Safari Boat tour on the way from the Arenal Volcano to the Manuel Antonio area, as well as from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio. This is a great way to break up this 5-hour drive to the Manuel Antonio beach, because you're bound to see a multitude of wildlife including the famous, huge, 20-ft American crocodiles that inhabit the Carara Biological Reserve area of the Tarcoles River. Keep your eyes peeled for a rare sighting of the Scarlet Macaw and over fifty other species of birds you can see there. Plus, if you're traveling with children, they'll get a kick out of the "Jesus Christ Lizards" that literally walk on water here. The industrial Río Virilla river originating near the capital city of San José later joins the Río Grande to form the Tarcoles River and flows southwest to the Pacific Ocean to the river mouth near Jacó's Herradura Beach. You'll be accompanied by a bilingual guide who will point out the often difficult-to-see wildlife along this two-hour boat tour of the Tarcoles River and into the Guacalillo mangrove estuary. Your whole family will love this entertaining and informative tour at one of Costa Rica's most-complex ecosystems. You're bound to see more crocodiles here than anywhere else in the world!
