Friends of Jug Bay Costa Rica Excursion!

Mar 01, 2020—Mar 06, 2020


Please note this trip is full for 2020.

The Friends of Jug Bay will revisit our Costa Rica partners at Palo Verde National Park, Costa Rica from March 1 to March 6, 2020. Proceeds from this trip will cover most if not all of the costs for Palo Verde staff to visit Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in Fall 2020.

This journey to the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica is all about the numbers: 100+ foot waterfalls;

  • dozens of coatis;
  • hundreds of crocodiles;
  • thousands of whistling ducks;
  • countless glasses of fresh-squeezed fruit juice;
  • and so much more!

Immerse yourself in the astounding biodiversity of Palo Verde National Park through guided naturalist hikes, aquatic tractor rides surrounded by jabirus, boat tours through the croc-filled Rio Tempisque, and science lectures offered by expert park researchers. ​ Take a day trip to local Catarata waterfall and summon the courage to jump off one before visiting an artisanal village for unique art and collectibles. See the impossibly blue waters of Tenorio Volcano National Park and Rio Celeste. Most important of all, spend an afternoon giving back to Palo Verde National Park by participating in a field station revitalization project identified by our partners.
