We visited towards end of December 2020. The tour was very entertaining and full of wildlife sightings. We saw many dif bird species and Jose made sure to identify each type as they came into view. He pointed out many baby crocodiles along the banks as we cruised along the river. The highlight by far was the guide getting in the water and slapping raw chicken pieces until large crocodiles would come right up to him and follow him out of the water right next to us in the boat. Huge 18+ foot crocodiles eating out of his hands within feet of the boat was exciting to see. Highly recommend this tour for anyone who likes to see large crocs.

Went with our three kids and everyone loved it. There are a lot of things to do in Costa Rica, but nothing like this. We had driven over the bridge to see the crocs, but it was totally different to be up close and personal with them. Jose is a funny dude, and we’ll recommend this to our friends in the future.

I went on this river expecting to just spot some crocodiles little did I know how up close I would really see them . Jose and his colleague’s were amazing and fearless . They were very considerate and turned the boat so that everyone in the boat could see these beautiful animal up close . They are also very good engaging with tourist as well as locals making sure everyone understood him and was enjoying the tour . Jose himself is also a very entertaining man and extremely funny . We didn’t only see crocodiles but iguanas and many different bird species we also saw catfish and crabs . Amazing experience . Thank you !!
