Mangrove & Crocodile Adventure Tour
-Departing from Central Pacific, Jacó
DURATION: Half Day
Discover first-hand the wonders of nature in the Rainforest. This adventure takes place on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, along the Guacalillo estuary and delta of the Tarcoles River, near the Carara National Park.
The area is surrounded by mangroves and located in a transitional forest, where literally hundreds of different kinds of mammals, birds, and reptiles flourish. This is a nesting site of the Scarlet Macaw and large colonies of crocodiles – some measuring up to 23 feet in length.
The area is also home to 250 species of birds, such as the tanagers, flycatchers, trogons, orioles, and humming-birds. During the migration period – from October to April – some of the many birds frequently seen are ospreys, gulls, terns, cormorants, pelicans, and frigates.
Door to door air-conditioned transportation, motorboat & equipment, bilingual guide, soft drinks & entrance fee.
