Description

Discover the birds and biodiversity of Palo Verde National Park on this boat tour with lunch. Complete your tour with a stop in Guaitil, known for its pottery, for an authentic Costa Rican experience. Start with an early morning pickup at a location provided by you.

Nature lovers can also get a close look at howler and capuchin monkeys. Spot crocodiles on the riverside. After a cruise down the Tempisque River, give yourself a well-earned break.
