Know More About Tárcoles River:

The Tárcoles River, also called the Grande de Tárcoles River or the Río Grande de Tarcoles, in Costa Rica originates on the southern slopes of the Cordillera Central volcanic range and flows in a south-westerly direction to the Gulf of Nicoya. The river is 111 kilometers (69 mi) long.

The river's upper reaches form the northern border of the Carara National Park. It is a habitat for American crocodiles, while the marshes located at the river's mouth have many waterfowl and wading birds. Among the many herons and egrets are the boatbill and Bare-throated tiger heron, and other birds found here include double-striped thick-knee, mangrove warbler, and American pygmy kingfisher.

The total list known of birds well exceeds 320 species including the little-known Guacalillo Canals. The avian biodiversity is phenomenal including rare birds such as Agami Heron, Rufous-necked Woodrail, Jabiru, Yellow-billed Cotinga, and recently found an Orinoco Goose. It's also home of Howler and White-faced Capuchin Monkeys. Less commonly seen are Silky Anteater, Sloths, Grinson, Jaguarundi, River Otter, and Northern Tamandua.

The crocodile bridge in Costa Rica is a great stop to stretch your legs. It’s such a popular stop that there are souvenir stores, restaurants, ice cream shops, and bathrooms right at the bridge.

If you’re driving, you can park on either side, there are spaces to park in front of the shops or restaurants.

After you park your car, walk onto the bridge. There is a pedestrian barrier running the full length of the bridge but be careful if crossing the street since cars drive very fast on the bridge.
