Waterfall and Palo Verde Park Tour
Secret Waterfall and Palo Verde Tour
Explore Guanacaste’s wilderness on an exciting boat tour, refresh yourself in a waterfall, and visit one of the province’s most important towns to learn about the main architectural curiosities of the area and enjoy some souvenir shopping.
Take a scenic journey in a van from your hotel to the Palo Verde National Park and the Bebedero River, some 30 minutes south from the town of Liberia. This area has a dock, restrooms & a restaurant you can access. Then it’s time to hop on the boat and start the trip along the narrow riverbed. Palo Verde is known for its 300+ species of birds, so be on the lookout! There are wood storks, ospreys, motmots, egrets, and kingfishers. Reptiles, amphibians, butterflies, and mammals (like howler & spider monkeys) live in the area too.
After lunch, take a short walk and immerse yourself in the dry forest. Here the trees open up to reveal the Llanos Cortés waterfall. This waterfall forms a pool below where you can swim. If you prefer, you can kick back and simply enjoy the view instead.
Head then to the town of Liberia to admire some of its most famous buildings and their varied architectural styles, ranging from modern to 100 years of age. Follow the guide as they teach you about local history. Take advantage of this visit to scour the shops for souvenirs, and don’t forget to buy one of Costa Rica’s staple desserts – a ‘copo’!
