The adventure takes place on the Trcoles River, one of four rivers flowing out into the Nicoya Peninsula, as well as home to one of the worlds largest crocodile populations in the wild with crocodiles up to fifteen feet long. In addition to the crocodiles, over fifty different kinds of birds can be seen on site, including the very rare scarlet macaw and a great variety of resident and migrant waterfowl. Iguanas and Jesus Christ lizards are very common as well. (Jesus Christ lizards are given their nickname because of their ability to run across the top of water when fleeing from predators.)
The Jungle Crocodile Safaris tour time is two hours. Our bilingual tourist guide offers expert orientation about the crocodiles and other associated wildlife. On the way downstream, the boat heads along the Guacalillo estuary, a most incredible mangrove ecosystem that features four different species of mangrove trees.
