Created for all types of nature seekers, family and single travelers a 2 hours tranquil boat ride floating along the mighty Tarcoles, home of the largest population of American Crocodiles in Central America. Some of them exceeding well over 18 feet long and weighing nearly 1300 lbs.
Along with our 2 hours boat service, you will not only enjoy the gentle ride and the vast knowledge of our naturalist, but MBJ has also gone the extra mile in both quality and services by providing all our participants with top-end binoculars so you can see and feel nature right there... Apart from amazing close encounters with those large reptilians; Tarcoles river and Guacalillo Mangroves also offer great opportunities to observe a great array of birds, many whom migrate year after year since begging of times from North America but also many local residents such as Kingfishers, Hawks hunting crabs, Spoonbills swagging from shrimp and other crustaceans. Often the disturbing call of Howler Monkeys rises upon the distance or a silent movement of a raccoon washing its prey. Our boat tour is truly designed for those seeking a connection to rainforest flora and fauna.
