WHAT TO EXPECT
Come and visit a unique tourist destination in Costa Rica that is just 30 minutes away from Jacó. Jungle Crocodile Safari offers a tour that is 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, as well as home to one of the world’s largest crocodile populations in the wild with crocodiles 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 Christ lizards are very common as well. (Jesus Christ lizards are given their nickname because of their ability to run across the top of the water when fleeing from predators.)
The 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 Guacalillo estuary, a most incredible mangrove ecosystem that features four different species of mangrove trees.
