What You Can Expect
Palo Verde National Park is a wildlife refuge located between Tempisque and Bebedero rivers; in this park, we can find the biggest area of wetlands in Costa Rica. The name of the park comes from the ?palo verde?. In English, it is known as horse bean, but its name literally means ?green stick? as the leaves, branches, and trunk of this thorny shrub are all green, it also has delicate, yellow flowers.
Scientists from all over the world come to study this rich ecosystem that combines rivers, marshland, mangroves and dry forest. During the bus ride, we will travel through the changing countryside of savannas, plantations, and little villages.
After boarding the boat, that will takes us up the river, we will be able to admire the natural beauty of this park, including wildlife; such as huge crocodiles resting under the sun, groups of monkeys moving quickly between the branches, while our boat takes you in a floating safari adventure through Tropical Forest. Birdwatching will never be the same after this tour.
Some birds are resident species plentiful in the area and it is possible to see hundreds of theme like Anhinga or ?Snake Bird?, Roseate Spoonbill, Wood Storks, the Jabiru, the largest bird in Central America and very endangered.
