PALO VERDE NATIONAL PARK
Palo Verde National Park, is the largest wetlands in Central America and home to over 200 species of migratory birds among other fauna such as Crocodiles, two species of monkeys, iguanas, bats, etc... Its importance is such, that it was added to the world patrimonial list of Ramsar.
A one hour and half drive from Tamarindo and a two hour boat ride will take you to the riverbanks and to river’s edge where often white faced monkeys will approach the boat and where you can observe a large number of North American wintering birds that have come here to flee the cold weather. If you are a bird and nature lover, this is the tour for you.
Once we get off the boat you will be served a delicious Costa Rican dish prepared on a traditional wood stove where you can see the way the native people of the area cooked their meals.
We offer the option to participate in demonstration of pottery making the traditional legacy left by our ancestors the Chorotega Indians whom we owe all of our traditions. You will have the opportunity to purchase the handcrafted pottery and therewith support the local artisans
