We'd like to invite you to join us on this wonderful combo excursion that features the best of Costa Rica. You'll start by enjoying breathtaking views of the rainforest at the Carara Adventure Park & Reserve. Then you'll head for a river cruise on the Tarcoles River, famous for its many tropical species, especially crocodiles. This combination of thrills and relaxation makes for a perfect day!
Your adventure begins just next to your Puntarenas cruise ship pier where you will meet your guide and climb aboard the luxury transportation. Relax in the air conditioning as you drive on a scenic route for one hour to Carara Adventure Park & Reserve where the rainforest walking shore excursion will begin.
You will soon find yourself out on this 1-mile length walk. The location is on the border between the Tropical and the Dry Pacific eco-systems and gives the local experts the ability to gather hundreds of species such as the poison dart frog, monkeys, raccoons, lizards, anteaters, and a wide variety of tropical birds. You will want to bring your camera and be sure to keep an eye out, there's much to see. Enjoy complimentary tropical fresh fruit and iced tea before you continue your journey.
Now that you are refreshed and relaxed, it's time to head out for the next adventure. You can climb aboard the boat that will take you down the Tarcoles River, which forms the northern border of the Carara Biological Reserve on the Pacific coast. This river is famous for its large American crocodiles, which is one of the world's largest crocodile populations in the wild. Again you might want to have your camera ready. There will be some amazing photo opportunities.
Finally, once the boat ride and river tour come to an end, you will be returned to your Puntarenas cruise ship pier. Since the pier is so close to the city you will have time to explore the boulevards and cityscape before you head back on the ship.
