Palo Verde National Park Boat Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Throughout the tour, you will see many species of native and foreign birds during their migration, as well as crocodiles, white face and howler monkeys, iguanas, bats, among other exotic animals. Palo Verde is best known as a bird-watchers' paradise.

    You will enjoy, simultaneously,  a spectacular wetlands and one of the best examples of tropical dry forests remaining anywhere in the world.  This dual nature is a result of the Río Tempisque flooding over land located in a relatively arid climate region. A typical  Costa Rican lunch will be served. The tour concludes with a drop off in your hotel.
