Nestled in the lush landscapes of Costa Rica, this tour was nothing short of amazing, offering us a front-row seat to the vibrant jungle life! Our guide, Jose, was the star of the show. His extensive knowledge about Costa Rica's ecosystems and wildlife was evident, and his enthusiasm was contagious. He expertly navigated us through the mangroves, ensuring we had the best views while maintaining a respectful distance from the crocs. It was more than just a tour; it was an immersive educational journey that deepened our appreciation for nature and wildlife. We left with unforgettable memories and a newfound respect for the natural world. Kudos to Jose and the team for an outstanding experience!

We had a fantastic time on the Crocodile boat tour with our family. It was perfect for all ages. We saw so many different types of birds and lots of different sizes of crocodiles. Ariel was our tour guide and he was fantastic, he really engaged with our kids and kept it very exciting. Highly recommend. The staff was so friendly.

Best thing about Jaco! I highly recommend this company for tours. We had a blast over multiple days with Adventure Tours Costa Rica. We went on a monkey tour, a crocodile tour and spent a full day on ATVs in the jungle. The staff was professional and super friendly. Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves!
