Arenal to Manuel Antonio Crocodile Viewing Tarcoles River - Do a Desafio Adventure Connection Tour and Transfer with a boat tour on the way!

Desafío Adventure Company continues to innovate and come up with great ways for you to enjoy tours on the way to your next destination. That's why we have added the Desafío Adventure Connection with a stop at the Tarcoles River for a Crocodile Safari Boat tour on the way from the Arenal Volcano to the Manuel Antonio area, as well as from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio.

This is a great way to break up this 5-hour drive to the Manuel Antonio beach, because you're bound to see a multitude of wildlife including the famous, huge, 20-ft American crocodiles that inhabit the Carara Biological Reserve area of the Tarcioles River. Keep your eyes peeled for a rare sighting of the Scarlet Macaw and over fifty other species of birds you can see there. Plus, if you're traveling with children, they'll get a kick out of the "Jesus Christ Lizards" that literally walk on water here.

The industrial Río Virilla river originating near the capital city of San José later joins the Río Grande to form the Tarcoles River and flows southwest to the Pacific Ocean to the river mouth near Jacó's Herradura Beach.

You'll be accompanied by a bilingual guide who will point out the often difficult-to-see wildlife along this two-hour boat tour of the Tarcoles River and into the Guacalillo mangrove estuary. Your whole family will love this entertaining and informative tour at one of Costa Rica's most-complex ecosystems. You're bound to see more crocodiles here than anywhere else in the world!

Plus, the Desafio vans are equipped with FREE WiFi, friendly and safe drivers and air-conditioning so you will have a comfortable ride and break up the long ride by doing something fun. You won't have to worry about navigating Costa Rica's challenging road system! You'll also have a chance to stop for lunch to calm those rumbling tummies after an exciting day of travel and crocodiles!
