Took this as part of TUI's Southern Adventure tour. The tour up the Black River was about 45 minutes and was a real great experience, we had sight of many crocodiles, birds and shrubs the river had to offer, great experience would definitely go again!

This was a terrible tour. Saw two crocodiles. The guide did not feed them at all. Save your money and don't go. Jose's Crocodile Tour in Costa Rica was amazing. This was flat out awful.

The"safari" took 30-35 minutes, it was too short and there was nothing interesting to see. Water, mangroves, a few birds and two little crocks. That' it.

This was something new for us. I enjoyed the close up view of nature, and was shocked at how close the birds and crocodiles got to the boat. It makes for great pics, but outside of that it is slower paced. I recommend it as...More

The actual tour is very relaxing but depending on the hotel you are travelling from the drive there and back could be very tiring not only for the kids but for you guys too. The whole black river is around an hour and very... More
