This is a great way to see birds. You get taken upstream so can see a huge variety of herons and other wading birds (and crocs) then down near the estuary and along a mangrove lined waterway. Very relaxing and enjoyable

This boat trip is on the Tarvoles River, which has the most American crocodile population in Costa Rica. The river flows to the Delta and the tour goes one way down the river and then back up the river toward the Delta. It is located about 75 miles west of the San Jose airport.
