The Palo Verde National Park of Costa Rica protects forested areas as well as an extensive marshland between the Tempisque and Bebedero rivers of Guanacaste. Palo Verde National Park is a diverse patchwork of habitats located in the heart of the Tempisque basin near the mouth of the Rio Tempisque River.
The density and variety of bird species that have been inventoried at Palo Verde is the primary reason that the park was created. Many resident tropical species also live here, including the rare Jabiru Stork.
The park protects one of the most endangered ecosystems. It is one of the last remaining tropical dry rainforests that once covered most of Central America. Tropical dry rainforests now exist in less than 0.1% of their original size and are considered to be the most endangered ecosystems in the tropics.
After a scenic drive, enjoy a two hours cruise on the Tempisque River being the nearest access to world famous Palo Verde National Park, home to hundreds of migrating and local water bird species.
Among other creatures you might see: monkeys, Iguanas, small mammals on the river banks and the mighty American Crocodile, one of the largest in the world.
After the safari, we provide you an authentic Costa Rican lunch cooked on a wooden stove, mmmm yummy!
On our return, we will pass by the famous artisan village of Guaitil and learn how the Chorotega Indians make this pottery using the same techniques that were used by their Pre-Columbian ancestors.
