Crocodile River Adventure in Costa Rica!

Our group took a tour on the Tarcoles River in Central Pacific Costa Rica.  The Taracoles River is perhaps best known for its abundance of American crocodiles. It's said that the T├írcoles River has one of the highest populations of crocodiles in the entire world - 25 crocodiles per square kilometer. We had the opportunity to get up close with American crocodiles of all sizes, and observe an abundance of beautiful exotic birds! 


In addition to the crocodiles, the river also supports more than 50 species of migratory, native and coastal birds, including a variety of heron and egrets, crested caracas, roseate  spoonbills, scarlet macaws and more.



 Iguanas can often be spotted scampering about the sides of the river as well.
