WHAT DOES YOUR TOUR HAVE IN STORE?
Your adventure begins when Manuel’s Tours comes to pick you up from your hotel. We will take a scenic drive north along the coast to Carara National Park. Your guide will educate you on the abundance of wildlife that makes Costa Rica unique to the rest of the world. They will keep their eyes peeled throughout the journey to the park for wildlife!
Upon arrival to the park we break for a quaint breakfast of coffee and fresh fruit. Around 7am we will begin our morning hike throughout the park. Carara National Park is where the humid rainforest meets the tropical dry desert making it the perfect place to see a wide variety of bird species. You will see the largest remaining wild populations of Scarlet Macaws. In addition, you may see toucans, trogons, wrens, antbirds, woodpeckers, snakes and deer!
Don’t forget to bring your phone or camera with you! You won’t want to miss the opportunity to take professional looking photos and HD videos of these uniquely beautiful birds. Manuel’s tours is different to other tours in Costa Rica because of our use of new, ATX Swarovski viewing scopes. Our guides are trained to help you take the best quality photos so you can take home a lifelong memory of your Costa Rican adventure!
Once we finish our walk, we will have a typical Costa Rican lunch in the beautiful landscapes of the lowlands.

See the best of Costa Rica by land and water during this jam-packed full day tour! Your guide will first take you through the trails of Carara National Park. The rest of your tour will begin where Carara National Park ends – the Tarcoles River. Your guide will accompany you as you spend the afternoon cruising down the river.
The best part? You’ll see one of the most populated American Crocodile habitats in the world! In addition to the crocs calling the river home, the Tarcoles River basin is home to over half of Costa Rica’s population. The vast marshlands are spotted with many animals, but the prize – and most often spotted – are the great crocodiles. The Crocodile Boat Tour company we work with is Jose’ Crocodile River Tour.
