Monkeys, Birds and Crocodiles, Oh My! Don’t miss our Palo Verde Adventure!

This is the best opportunity to have a chance to see the wildlife flora and fauna for which Costa Rica is most famous, including: Green iguanas, Black Ctenosaur, Jesus Christ Lizard, American Crocodiles, White Faced Monkeys and Howler Monkeys.
Enjoy Palo Verde National Park, which protects over 47,000 acres and is known for its ecological diversity, preserving wetlands and providing a refuge for a myriad of wildlife.
Board a covered riverboat for a 2-hour ride down the slow moving Tempisque River. But, be on the lookout and ready to shot those one of a kind photos.

Over 300 bird species including the Northern Jacana, Herons, Jabiru, Roseate Spoonbills, Egrets, Ibis, Black-bellied Whistling ducks, Scarlet macaws, and parrots have been recorded.
