Palo Verde is located in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica and part of Area Conservation Tempisque (can take if you need ride), with more than 71 square miles of spectacular scenery, all kinds of wildlife and great warmth by the inhabitants of the surrounding towns, Palo Verde is a dream to be visited.
You can reach the park on your own, through a tour operator or hire a shuttle service. Once there you can enjoy the great variety of birds, including the huge Roseate Spoonbill, Wood Stork and Great curassow (the last one in a state of vulnerability for man), among many others. During the dry season water is scarce in other parts of the Costa Rica. Due to this, many birds flock to the park and its river basin. Parajos Island, which is located in the middle of the Tempisque River, is usually a great place to spot birds. This island is the largest nesting site for the black-crowned night-herons in Costa Rica. It says there are over 280 species of birds, migratory and resident, making Palo Verde one of the best places to see birds in Costa Rica and around the world.
Also you will see mammals of all sizes, from small white-faced monkeys (please do not feed the monkeys with bananas, as these are not in their natural diet and high in potassium is harmful to their health.), to big deers, coyotes, ocelots, and huge pumas. Want to see some happy monkeys? This video was taken at one of our special transport service, enjoy !! https://youtu.be/V9FGOCQqhkA
To be wetland area the park also has a variety of amphibians, with huge populations of toads and frogs and reptiles of all sizes and colors, including snakes, iguanas, snakes lethal and large as Bequer (Boa constrictor) and Coral and Cascabel (rattle) snake. And of course the king of rivers: the crocodile, with the incredible stats of adults average a length of 2.5 to 3 m and weigh 100 to 270 kg. The largest males can reach 6 or 7 m, making this one of the largest species of crocodile in the world, very impressive, rigth !?
