What You Can Expect
Once inside the park, hop aboard a boat for a leisurely cruise down the Bebedero River. Your naturalist guide will provide birdwatching tips to help you spot and identify species like the tropical king bird, tiger heron, roseate spoonbill and American woodstock. As you explore the park’s diverse habitats among mangroves, swamps, and lagoons, keep an eye out for other animals that reside here, such as howler monkeys, iguanas and crocodiles.
Learn about the unique landscapes and biodiversity of the park from your guide as you explore this beautiful natural reserve. Hear how the park got its name from the abundant palo verde, or horse bean, that grows in the surrounding deciduous and evergreen forests. After your boat ride, enjoy a tasty lunch with your group before the return drive to your hotel.
Saw a lot of white faced monkeys, crocodiles, birds, iguanas and even bats. It was a good trip and great for viewing the wildlife.
Great tour, amazing food! Thought there would be more birds, guide was extremely knowledgeable, the long ride is worth it, you can nap. Saw crocs, iguanas, snake, monkeys (far though), Jesus Christ lizards (funny and cute), flamingos, take this tour!
Didn't really get to see many animals.
I am not completely sure how I feel about this tour. Viator was not very clear in the description of what this trip would entail. I love animals, so I booked this tour, solely so I could see animals. I did see animals, but it just felt incomplete. We spent an hour and a half cruising down a boat in a river, and after that, we ate lunch and went to another stop to see how coffee and tortillas are made. This is where I felt misled. Nowhere in Viator's description does it list the length of the boat ride, or does it mention the coffee and tortilla stop. I don't even like coffee!!! Had I known that we would spend such a limited amount of time at the park, I would have booked a completely different tour with another company. Again, I purchased so I could see wildlife hence the name of the tour, not learn about coffee or tortillas! I did see monkeys, so it was not a complete waste. However, if you're like me, and you want to see an abundance of animals, don't book this tour! You'll spend a short time at the park, and then be dragged off to learn about something that you didn't ask or pay to learn about. I feel very short changed.
