If you´ve been looking for a once in a lifetime activity in Costa Rica, look no further the the Crocodile Safari tour in Jaco. The quintessential jungle experience in Costa Rica is found just outside Jaco on the Tarcoles River. Teaming with wildlife, we will tour the Tarcoles mangrove forest by boat and sidle up to a river bank full of crocodiles. Yup, you read that right, giant crocodiles so grab your Indiana Jones hat, we´re going on an adventure!
Floating down the Tarcoles River we´ll learn about some of the ways this land is so special to the Costa Rican people, and how it embodies that "Pura Vida" which Costa Rica is so famous for. The mangrove forest, with its Jurassic and otherworldly feel, is the perfect place to get the adventuring underway. We´ll float through the network of waterways as the jungle provides the perfect soundtrack of birds singing and monkeys hollering. With the help of our enthusiastic local guides we will also spot iguanas, sloths, basilisks, and many other creatures along the way, so keep your camera handy for some serious Nat Geo photo ops!
Before long we´ll start seeing crocodiles, and more crocodiles, and that is when a whole new adventure begins! We´ll get as close as possible to the crocodiles so you can really witness their immense size and power for yourself. By some estimates this is the highest concentration of crocodiles anywhere in the world! It is said that there are around 25 crocodiles per square kilometer, which means you´re sure to get your fill of these amazing creatures before our time is through. You may even get to touch a 1000 pound crocodile´s tail...if you are the real adventurous type that is.
The Tarcoles River Crocodile Safari tour is hands-down one of the most popular tours in Jaco. This must do excursion in Costa Rica also gives you some of the best photo opportunities of humans interacting with wildlife anywhere.
