Palo Verde Boat Tour

Palo Verde Boat Tour

Nature and Culture

Embark on a visual safari offering you a unique and memorable adventure on the Tempisque River surrounding the Palo Verde National Park.

This is a great opportunity to admire several animals in their natural habitat such as white face monkeys, wild turkeys, howler monkeys, coatis, herons and more.

Along the banks of Río Tempisque, you can catch a glimpse of sleepy-eyed crocodiles sunning themselves on the sand or gliding through the water.

Tempisque is one of Costa Rica’s areas rich in biodiversity, and a patient nature aficionado will enjoy spotting creatures such as iguanas, basilisk, waterfowl and a few species of monkeys.

The Palo Verde Boat Tour is available as a Featured Tour every Tuesday, but you can customize this tour any other day of the week.

For bird watchers, this is one of the best opportunities in Guanacaste and Costa Rica.  A verdant, lush experience, this boat tour therefore offers brilliant photography. With the river basin and marshlands, more than one hundred species birds are able to flourish in a natural habitat.

The environment also invites migrating bird species that include night herons, wood storks, roseate spoonbills, cattle egrets, great egrets, and more.

This tour offers a larger-than-life experience for the tourist and connoisseur in the know. Hidden away among the limestone hills and on the shore of Costa Rica’s largest river, Tempisque is an experience like no other.
