Meet big crocodiles - we're talking 20 feet long!

Our day begins with a scenic countryside drive to our destination - the Carara Adventure Park and Reserve.

Experience the raw power of the rainforest through our Rainforest walking tour. Of 1 mile in length, this all-ages tour lets you observe a wide array of exotic flora and wildlife firsthand. Make yourself one with the jungle! Located on the border between the tropical and dry Pacific ecosystem, Carara's location gives us the benefit of gathering hundreds of species of birds as well as exotic animals including poison dart frogs, monkeys, raccoons, lizards, deer, scarlet macaws and many more.

After your rainforest adventure, our journey will continue to the Tarcoles River. Famous for its large American Crocodiles, the Tarcoles River forms the Northern border of Carara Biological Reserve on the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The Tarcoles River is home to one of the world’s largest crocodile populations in the wild and they are very easy to admire during our one-hour boat tour. Besides crocodiles, many aquatic bird species, monkeys & scarlet macaws are easy to see.

This half-day, educational tour is designed for you to experience, photograph and learn about the native wildlife.
