What to expect

Nourished by the River Tempisque, the fertile lands of Palo Verde National Park provide sanctuary to a mind-boggling array of exotic birds and other wildlife. And this excursion provides unique access to the reserve, which is world-renowned for its biodiversity and natural beauty – providing refuge for some of the region's most endangered species.

We have the only boat on the river at this time of day and you will enjoy exclusive views of the multitude of nesting birds, hollering monkeys, iguanas and even crocodiles basking on the riverbanks.

After this experience, you'll witness and partake in a trapiche – the centuries-old sugarcane processing method. Here, you'll prepare your own local snacks such as tortilla, washed down with a cup of the world-famous Costa Rican coffee. Then, it's off to tour the Casa de Sabaneros. Known as the ‘cowboys of Guanacaste' – thanks to their sun-leathered skin and wide-brimmed hats – sabaneros evoke images of the Wild West.
