Lets Go to the Beach!


But, first we will make a stop at the famous "cocdrillo" bed in the Tarcoles River.
But, first we will make a stop at the famous “cocodrillo” bed in the Tarcoles River.

Our drive to Quepos/Manuel Antonio takes us through the small town of Tarcoles and across the river. It is a must to stop on the nearest side of the bridge and park, if you are only going to the middle and back; or if you are with a driver, they will gladly drop you on the near side while you walk across the bridge and snap photos or just be amazed-and not just a little aghast-at the abundant population of crocodiles that reside there. They will then wait patiently for you to rejoin them on the other side of the bridge. There are also, of course, the usual nearby restaurant/bar and grocery store/produce combination markets that appear to at regular roadside intervals in this country, making travel a complete pleasure-and enabling you to forget the often bumpy roads. The road from the airport to Quepos, however, has been improved and the travel is comfortable for most of the journey.
How about a close-up, Mr. DeMille?

This is a real “must do” if you love wildlife, and for those of us shutterbugs who can’t seem to get enough photos, its a good experience both coming and going, sort of a Costa Rican “Aloha”. 😉
