Great spot! I stayed right in the park for three nights, and saw a ton of wildlife. It is quite different from much of Costa Rica because of the dry forest. I highly recommend staying at the research.... more »
We scheduled a tour with Palo Verde River Tours and drove to the park. Tour was laid back and saw lots of birds, monkeys, and crocs. Great lunch afterwards, too, provided by tour company.
We had a great river tour. Boat captains ensured we saw plenty of wildlife & they coped well with very windy conditions.
