With over two-thousand crocodiles living at the mouth of this river, Tarcoles is home to the largest concentration of crocs per square kilometer in all of Central America.
With the convergence of three ecosystems – river, swamps and the Pacific Ocean – the mouth of the river Tarcoles draws an incredible variety of wildlife to a uniquely concentrated area.
Birding enthusiasts come from all over the world to observe the incredible variety of rare species found here, and private birding tours can be arranged on request.
Those who come to Costa Rica with monkeys and sloths on their agenda often leave satisfied as well after a sunset tour.
With over 15 years of experience observing the mangroves and river mouth of Tarcoles, the Vargas family educates, thrills and leaves nothing to chance.
