Palo Verde Wildlife River Boat Cruise
The Palo Verde National Park tour in Guanacaste, Costa Rica is usually on everyone's must-see list when visiting the area. Your day starts early as we pick you up from your hotel or condo and drive you to one of the rarest and bio-diverse ecosystems in the world. Recommended for those who seek wildlife and birdlife. Palo Verde comprises dry forest, wetland and mangrove swamps, which is an ideal habitat for Costa Rican crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, parrots, and other exotic birds. The Palo Verde Tour carries you through one of the largest concentrations of waterfowl in Central America. The Palo Verde National Park Riverboat Tour takes place along a stretch of the Tempisque River Conservation Area in Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica. The surrounding region is mostly tropical dry forest, and the park focuses on conserving vital floodplain, marshes, limestone ridges, and seasonal pools from the encroachment of civilization to mitigate the risk to the ecology. A major feature is the density and variety of bird species, a substantial factor that led to the creation of the reserve, due in part to its diverse ecology: 15 different topographical zones ranging from evergreen forests to mangrove swamps. Birds spotted regularly in the park include Great Curassows, Scarlet Macaws, White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills, Anhingas, Jabirus, and Wood Storks, among many others.
