Stopped here on our way down from San Jose. Just off the main road and easy to get to. Jason was very knowledgable of the plants, animals and crocodiles we saw. Provided more of a local insight into the flora and fauna around rather than acting as a "touristy" adventure. Actually got out of the boat to feed the crocodiles which was a sight to see. So many crocodiles, so close to the boat. Incredible!! Will recommend this to other friends when they head down to Costa Rica in a few months. There is another crocodile tour in town, so make sure you are at Crocodile Man Tour. Just follow the signs.

This is a really coll 2 hour tour of the Tarcoles River. We got to see huge crocodiles and many other types of animals. The guide actually gets out of the boat and fed the crocodile pieces of chicken! Will do this tour again for sure!

My husband and I took this tour our last day in Costa Rica, before heading home. I thought it would be kind of touristy, and it was, but we really enjoyed it. We were the only ones on the boat, so we got a private tour, saw lots of birds and HUGE crocodiles, and took lots of pictures. It was fun and since the Tarcoles river is known for its crocodile population this is something of a must do tour. Geison and Luis were our guides and they were terrific!

This was a good tour to do on our way to Manual Antonio. Our family of eight, ages 11 - 85 all enjoyed it. There was very little walking and they turned the boat each way so everyone had a good look. It was a little cheesy but very fun. My husband really didn't want to do it but in the end, even he had fun and learned somethings too. Our transportation, Odyssey Day Tours, stayed with the van and our luggage, so we had no worries. They do feed the crocs raw chicken so if this bothers you, choose something different. We loved it.

You’ll never get this close to a croc again! It was a relaxing tour that anyone could do and gets you up-close and personal with some huge crocs. To witness the craziness of feeding a 15 foot crocodile by hand was well worth the price of admission.
