Puntarenas, Costa Rica
Durée : 4 h 1/2
Explore the more remote areas around Puntarenas by riding a vintage train inland and then boarding a boat for a cruise up the Tarcoles River, which is crawling with crocodiles.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief drive to a Pacific Railroad train station and board a vintage train bound for Salinas. The train will follow a route that was carved out of the jungle to transport coffee from the highlands to the coast.
Along the way, you will pass one small village after another.
Upon arriving in Salinas, you will reboard your motorcoach to drive to Hacienda Nosavar where you will board a covered river boat and cruise the Tarcoles River. The waterway is absolutely teeming with thousands of crocodiles. Some of these fearsome reptiles grow up to 15 feet long, and it is quite a sight to see them basking in the sun on the riverbanks and silently stalking prey.
An abundance of birds also lives along the river, and you are likely to spot flycatchers, storks and kingfishers. You might also catch sight of the occasional hawk, parrot or monkey in the treetops. Following the cruise, you will head to a nearby hacienda to snack on fresh fruit while watching a folkloric show.
