Palo Verde Boat Tour and Guaitil Pottery

Book It

Experience the beauty of Guaitil Pottery followed by the Palo Verde Boat Tour! We’ll pick you up from your Samara Beach or Guanacaste hotel and drive through the Costa Rican countryside. During the drive you’ll see gorgeous scenery and the small villages that reside just off the main roads.


On the way to the Palo Verde National Park, we will stop in Guaitil, the home of many talented artisans who showcase their work all around Costa Rica. You might have seen their work in souvenir shops. Now you will get to see how the work is done first-hand! An artisan will show you how to turn natural clay into a useful or decorative object. Soon, you’ll realize how natural and important this ancient process is in Costa Rican culture. Next, you’ll head to Palo Verde National Park, a wildlife refuge. It encompasses more than 10,000 square hectares located between the Tempisque and Bebedero rivers.

Experience Nature – Up Close

When you arrive at the edge of the river, you’ll hop on board a comfortable, covered motorized boat. Then, you’ll make your way down the river with an experienced nature guide. Your guide will point out various types of wildlife like birds, iguanas, lizards, monkeys and even crocodiles! When your tour is over, you will be taken to a delicious restaurant to enjoy a traditional Costa Rican lunch.
