From mangroves to swamps, saltwater to freshwater lagoons, Palo Verde National Park in Costa Rica has it all! This day trip takes you traveling along the Bebedero River to gaze at exotic animals such as anteaters and crocodiles. You might also spot howler monkeys, green iguanas, and a wide array of local Costa Rican birds. As you travel along the deep, slow-moving Bebedero River and cross dry Pacific savannas, discover a myriad of wild creatures in Guanacaste’s phenomenal Palo Verde National Park. The park is one of the most famous international bird-nesting sites and it provides shelter for a great variety of birds, including the American Woodstock, the Roseate Spoonbill, the Shite Ibis, the Greets Egret, the Little Blue Heron, the Boat-Billed Heron, the Tiger Heron, and the Tropical Kingbird.
Palo Verde National Park is home to dramatic biodiversity in its mangroves, swamps, lagoons and marshes. There are also deciduous and evergreen forests where the characteristic "palo verde," or horse bean, grows. During your boat trip through the park, your guide will help you become an excellent bird watcher and teach you how to differentiate their calls.
