Unfortunately there is no longer feeding allowed. You will see few small sleeping crocodiles. Highly recommend for free to go to the bridge and see over dozen very large crocodiles.

My husband and I went with our two small children on this tour. The guide was very knowledgable on the birds and crocs. It was very informative. After the tour we had free coffee at the restaurant and we ordered some food. The fruit platter was $3 and amazing!

Our guide pointed out lots of birds and told us a lot about the American crocodiles in the river. This operation is the original tour company and it is run by Zpuerto Arica she. Our guide said they do not feed the alligators.

I had no idea what to expect but our guide #peachy was awesome!! He was knowledgeable and funny and even taught us a few things. We saw so many beautiful birds and the croc's were insane! Literally like right in front of us! So cool! Definitely a highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Highly recommend and worth your time.
