Neat trip. Not only to see Croc's, but also plenty of birds and reptiles and even cows. The guides knew their stuff. Boat comfortable and has a top, so the it helps with the sun.

DO NOT MISS THIS ADVENTURE! Jason and his team will wow and amaze you with their attentive service and commitment to safety. But, the close-up experiences with 18-foot crocs and birds of every kind will blow you away. Take the sunset tour and cap the adventure with an exquisite ocean sunset at the mouth of the Tárcoles River. DO NOT... More

Our guide Jason, a Tárcoles native, truly knows his way around the river. He has funny names for the largest crocodiles and provides loads of information on the wildlife along the river. This is a great tour for anyone visiting Costa Rica's central Pacific.

We were 3 couples taking the tour and all of us felt the same, it was awesome. The beautiful river and all the birds on the shores was enjoyable just as much as the Crocodiles. Finally our captain of the boat gets out of the boat on to the shore and start pounding on the water and this enormous Crocodile... More

Great guides who showed us many bird but the highlight was one of the guides feeding several very large crocs. Try and sit in the two or three rows behind driver.

We went on this tour on a recommendation. I am disabled and cannot walk very far. This was the perfect trip. Jason was our river boat guide. He was just wonderful. The tour was amazing. Jason is so very knowledgeable and made sure we had a blast. This is the best of the crocodile tours

This is like Disneyland's Jungle Tour but for real. There is this river half an hour north of Jaco where the brackish water is home to dozens of crocodiles. These guys take you out on a shaded boat for a couple hours and take you close up to the crocodiles. Genuinely fascinating tour. Something you cannot do in the States.
