    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Palo Verde National Park, Costa Rica

    You will be picked up from your hotel or vacation rental and travel by vehicle through small towns and some of the best agricultural areas in Guanacaste as you observe melon plantations, sugar cane and more.

    You will arrive to the small town of Bolton where you can take a quick bathroom break before embarking on the river cruise. Once you are on the river, your knowledgeable guide will share with you information about the river and its inhabitants. Be prepared to see crocodiles, howler and white faced monkeys, huge iguanas and a vast array of birds. There will be endless photo opportunities. After your river cruise, you will enjoy a traditional family style Costa Rican lunch. Some say it's the best meal they had while on vacation.

    Then you will head back to the Tamarindo area and your hotel. This tour is not to be missed by nature lovers.
