3 Unique Ways to Explore Costa Rica During “Green Season”
If you’ve ever traveled to Jaco Beach, Costa Rica, before, you know that our jaw-dropping coastal paradise has two main seasons: summer (January through April) and the “green season” (May through December). Not only is our particular slice of tropical paradise extra beautiful during the lush green season, but rates on flights, accommodations, and adventures are less expensive. While this time of the year is also known as the “rainy season,” the showers in Costa Rica are cyclical, therefore very easy to predict! When you’re not gambling at our colorful Jaco casino, soaking in our lavish oceanfront pool, and enjoying spa treatments at the on-site Carara Spa & Salon, we recommend venturing into the awe-inspiring forestry during this year’s green season. Croc’s Resort & Casino is proud to be one of the only Jaco Beach hotels to collaborate with the area’s best adventure-based companies to provide over a dozen unforgettable tours ranging from birdwatching to sailing.
There are several ways to explore Costa Rica’s coastline, national parks, and lush rainforests, but it doesn’t get much more exciting than The Explorer package. There are dozens of jaw-dropping waterfalls within minutes from Croc’s Resort & Casino, one of the premier Jaco Beach hotels. This adventurous tour is led by a bilingual local guide who will escort your group deep into the jungle where you’ll quickly discover more than ten waterfalls. You’ll spend several hours snapping photos, relaxing in the warm river pools, and diving under the falls. The Explorer package is one of the easiest yet most transcendental ways to get in touch with nature during the green season!
Manuel Antonio National Park
For those who wish to explore the beauty of nearby Manuel Antonio National Park, all you have to do is hop aboard a shuttle and join a guided rainforest tour that you reserved through our concierge. If you’re hoping to observe several wild mammals in their natural habitat during your visit to Croc’s Resort & Casino, one of the top-rated Jaco Beach hotels, you won’t find a better exotic locale than Manuel Antonio National Park. Birdwatching is one of the most popular things to do in Jaco, Costa Rica. And this awe-inspiring national park is home to beautiful macaws and toucans as well as monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and agoutis. The two-mile guided hike also leads to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world: Manuel Antonio Beach.
Croc’s Resort & Casino is one of the only Jaco Beach hotels to offer guided ATV tours deep into the surrounding rainforest. ATVing is the perfect mid-day activity for those who wish to explore the natural beauty of our pristine jungles while also enjoying a hefty dose of thrills. All ATV tours are tailored to each group’s collective skill level, so whether you’re a beginner or an expert, your experience will be unique, flexible, and utterly incredible from start to finish! These trails are predictably muddy during the green season, which adds an extra element of fun for those who love “mud running.”
Ocean-View Jaco Beach Hotels
Start each morning with a steaming cup of locally-produced, 100 percent Arabica coffee at El Cafetal Coffee Shop before venturing into the nearby rainforests for a day filled with waterfall hunting, monkey spotting, or jungle ATVing!
