Follow the flight of Costa Rica's endangered Scarlett Macaw from the rainforest canopy in the Carara National Park down the mangroves along the Tarcoles River on oneof the best nature tours in Jaco. Our Carara National Park & Crocodile Safari Combo has everything a nature lover could ask for. So grab your binoculars and your cameras and come with us on a safari adventure in Costa Rica you will not soon forget.
Our first stop is one of Costa Rica's smaller and lesser known secrets, Carara National Park just outside of Jaco. Carara National Park seems to be the mecca for the Scarlet Macaw which is endangered in most other parts of the world, but has luckily thrived in Jaco thanks to Costa Rica's protection laws early on. Although the star of the show, there is a lot of super stars on the Carara National Park center stage including monkeys, toucans, trogons, iguanas, kinkajous, and even a boa or two hide in the shelter of the transitional rainforest in Jaco. With the help of our expert naturalist guides, you can get your own National Geographic worthy photos of these rainforest superstars in Costa Rica.
Next up is our mangrove tour and Crocodile Safari on the Tarcoles River! Now is the time to don your Crocodile Dundee hats because some of the biggest American Crocodiles are found right here in Jaco along the Tarcoles River and we are going to take a boat and get up close and personal with a few "friendly" crocodiles. Our expert guides will teach you about how these giants came to thrive in Jaco, the current protections in place to protect the crocodiles in Tarcoles, and get you close enough to take some pretty amazing photos to impress your friends back home. Top it all off with a tasty lunch at a local Tico joint....what more can you ask for?
