Subject: Visit The Tarcoles Crocodile Bridge While In Jaco
(Posted on Jan 30, 2014 at 04:06PM )

tarcoles crocodile bridge costa ricaA stretch of highway curves just beyond Jaco, leading travelers to San Jose and its downtown delights. There is more to discover on this open road than a metropolis, however. There are also crocodiles.

Drive across the Tarcoles Bridge, a concrete structure that spans the northern and southern banks of the Tarcoles River. Sidewalks line this bridge, allowing travelers to exit their cars and peer over the edges. What they then find are American Crocodiles - dozens of them.

No matter what the season, this stretch of river boasts a collection of crocodiles that can’t be denied. Eco-tourists, families and sport fishermen alike will be delighted as they watch these creatures swim and feast. Local guides are available to provide up-close encounters, and regular feeding events offer photo opportunities and excitement.

The Tarcoles Bridge is a short drive from Jaco, averaging less than ten minutes. Lengthy lines will develop along the sidewalks, however, and finding a prime viewing spot can prove difficult. Arrive early to bypass the crowds or schedule a private bank excursion.
