Cruise the mangrove-lined Tarcoles River to observe the countless crocodiles that inhabit the murky waters and then watch an entertaining dance performance.

After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a meandering drive into the countryside south of Puntarenas, where the Tarcoles River empties into the sea. You will then board a small boat and cruise into the surrounding protected wilderness.

The river supports an abundance of wildlife, including one of the world's largest colonies of American crocodiles. There are literally thousands of crocodiles, which can typically be seen sunning on the riverbanks. They often keep their mouths open when sunning, a behavior known as "gaping," which helps to regulate their body temperature.

Although ferocious looking, crocodiles are actually shy and reclusive. They usually enter the water silently. If you spot one quickly splashing into the river, it is probably frightened, despite the fact that crocodiles are top predators that can grow up to 15 feet long.

The mangrove-lined shores of the river also provide safe haven for a large number of birds such as herons, egrets and storks. You may see hummingbirds flitting about, vireos perching on the intertwined mangrove branches and Panama flycatchers mournfully whistling, which is their distinctive call. You may also spot basilisks walking on water in a complex move that creates air pockets beneath their feet as they slap the surface of the water.

Following the river cruise, you will watch a folkloric dance performance while snacking on fresh fruit.

Need to Know:

Note: Guests should be able to manage steps on the bus and boat. Wear light clothing, comfortable walking shoes and hat. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent.
