Crocodiles at the Tarcoles River
The bridge over the Tarcoles River in Costa Rica is a frightening and amazing sight to see. There are tours that will take you there as a stop, but it is just a bridge over a road and if you have a car you can go see it. There are also tours that take you in a boat right up to the crocodiles and the tour guide feeds a crocodile. High up on the bridge was as close as we wanted to get to these crocodiles.
We were told by a couple of tour guides (for other tours) that the only person who ever was attacked and eaten by the crocs was someone who decided to swim the river. Anyone could figure out that was not going to be a good idea. They said only the skull was found. Ugh.
So, in the zoomed out pictures you can see 6 or so crocodiles above water or near the surface. What is scary, is the longer you sit there and look at there you see more and more resurface for a moment and go back down. There are so many of them there!!!!
Plus, we saw this guy just hanging out as we parked our SUV near the bridge and got out.
