Today you will go on the Palo Verde National Park tour. This tour starts off on a covered riverboat which will take you through the river in the national park. Palo Verde is a bird watchers paradise as it is home to the highest concentration of migratory birds in Central America. You will also have a great chance at viewing crocodiles, monkeys, and other wildlife. After the riverboat ride, you will eat lunch at a typical Costa Rican style restaurant where you can also browse handicrafts for sale. This 7 hour tour includes transportation, guide, lunch, and drinks. Note that drive times to the tour from El Jobo can be considerable and longer than previously mentioned (disregard if staying in other areas).
