Tarcoles means Crocodile in the native language of 1500 Costa Rica. The only reason to ever go to this town is to see the Crocodile Man Tour. The Tarcoles river has the most crocodiles per square mile then anywhere else in the Americas. They also have some of the largest crocs in the world, with some measuring 17ft which is huge!! Watch this video and tell me what you think about this guy.

How to get there:
1 hour drive north from Jaco
