Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera) Tarcoles River Excursion Reviews
Costa Rica's Favorites. Started with a Pacific Rain Forest aerial tram ride : beautiful, lush, waterfalls, quiet view of the rain forest. Amazing. Most amazing part of excursion was the boat ride in the Tarcoles River with a naturalist/ecologist and a boat driver who could make birds sounds and sounds of howler monkeys to attract the animals and he maneuvered us up close. We saw 32 species of birds, crocs, and a family of howler monkeys. This is a protected reserve area and so quiet and peaceful you could hear the birds before you saw them. Just amazing and HIGHLY recommended. Bring mosquito repellant and sunscreen. Just fabulous!
We went on a crocodile river safari on the Tarcoles River.
The best thing about this tour was seeing many exotic birds. The fruit at the end of the tour was excellent. There was shopping at the site too. You could save money and join a guide right at the port.
We enjoyed the tour very much but if you want to save money this is an option.
