Our guide pointed out lots of birds and told us a lot about the American crocodiles in the river. This operation is the original tour company and it is run by Zpuerto Arica she. Our guide said they do not feed the alligators.

I had no idea what to expect but our guide #peachy was awesome!! He was knowledgeable and funny and even taught us a few things. We saw so many beautiful birds and the croc's were insane! Literally like right in front of us! So cool! Definitely a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Highly recommend and worth your time.

This is the second time I have taken this tour with Crodile Man. Each time it has been a great experience from watching the boat driver feed the Crocs to exploring the Mangrove forest at the end of the tour at the mouth of the Tarcoles River where it empties into the Pacific Ocean. It is efficiently operated and the... More

We had a fantastic time seeing crocs, a great variety of birds, iguanas and brahma cows. We had a very knowledgeable guide who made it all the more interesting. At one stage we pulled up alongside an 18 foot croc, the king of the river, which was asleep half out of the water. We came right alongside it for photos.... More

Went with a large group of LDS people from a cruise ship. We had some real up close and contact with the crocodiles. The guides spoke fluent English for us and everything was on the up and up. We had a package that included lunch and it was great. Even had some iguanas in the rafters of the eating pavilion... More

Neat trip. Not only to see Croc's, but also plenty of birds and reptiles and even cows. The guides knew their stuff. Boat comfortable and has a top, so the it helps with the sun.

DO NOT MISS THIS ADVENTURE! Jason and his team will wow and amaze you with their attentive service and commitment to safety. But, the close-up experiences with 18-foot crocs and birds of every kind will blow you away. Take the sunset tour and cap the adventure with an exquisite ocean sunset at the mouth of the Tárcoles River. DO NOT... More
