Whether you prefer to explore nature by boat on a safari float in the Tarcoles River or hiking on foot through Carara National Park seeking out the beautiful Scarlett Macaws, there are Eco tours in Jaco for every explorer's style. No matter which Jaco eco tour you choose, we can guarantee you will encounter stunning natural sites and abundant wildlife in and around this breathtaking region of Jaco, Costa Rica!
The variety and sheer volume of life in Jaco's rainforest is staggering. We have 850 species of birds in Costa Rica, which is more than all of North America combined! The symbiosis of bird, insect, plant and animal life is fascinating and hiking is a good option to get to know the country at a closer level rather than from the window of an air-conditioned bus. An eco-tour in Jaco is also a nice reprieve from the party atmosphere found in Jaco Beach. In fact, you could spend many lifetimes exploring the Jaco rainforest, and still not fully understand the complexity of life in Costa Rica's ecosystem.
In addition to the beautiful beaches, Jaco has a wide variety of ecosystems nearby for you to explore including the rainforest, mangroves, the Tarcoles River, and stunning waterfalls. Pick your favorite experience in nature from the list of Nature & Eco Tours departing from Jaco below!
