Additional Location Information

Tárcoles is well known for the famous Crocodile boat tours on the river. It is a small town's claim to fame. In fact, you don't actually have to drive to Tárcoles to do the tour, because operators can pick you up in Herradura or Jacó. The muddy river has gained a reputation as the country's dirtiest, thanks to San José's inadequate sewage system, but it amazingly remains an impressive refuge for wildlife. A huge diversity of birds results from a combination of transitional forest and the river, which houses crocodiles, herons, storks, spoonbills, and other waterbirds. This is also one of the few areas in the country where you can see scarlet macaws, which you may spot on a boat tour or while hiking in a private reserve nearby.

The unassuming little town of Tarcoles lies in the North Puntarenas area of Costa Rica. Seated parallel to the ocean, the town has a modest string of houses set alongside a series of dirt roads. Presenting quite a humble picture, this quiet little town and its surrounding area is mainly visited by bird watchers and hikers. The Rio Tarcoles mudflats lie just beyond the village, offering birding opportunities, hiking trails and one of the tallest waterfalls in the country.
