Palo Verde National Park & Wildlife Cruise

Quick Details

Start time: 9 a.m.

Duration: 5.5 hours

Guests: 2-person minimum

This is a must-do tour when in Costa Rica. You are taken through back roads, sugar cane fields, local towns, culture, and more! Cruise down Rio Tempisque, the third longest river in the country, and encounter local wildlife.

The Rio Tempisque ends at Nicoya Gulf, and when the Pacific Ocean goes on high tide, it takes over the river, providing a tremendous exchange in the water, fish, vegetation, and wildlife that feeds there. The river is the meeting place for monkeys, crocodiles, exotics birds, bats, big iguanas, and more.

We always say that lunch is the best part of the tour, and this package includes a delicious, 100% authentic Costa Rican meal, cooked on a wooden stove.

On the way back, we stop for souvenir shopping or anything that you may need. Please let us know if you have special requests.
