What people are saying about Hacienda Nosavar, Tarcoles

the activity itself was really awesome. We saw several species of birds and crocodiles, some very close. The guide was super friendly and knowledgeable about his subject. The only small detail is that the activity lasts between 1h30 and 2h and not 3h as listed. I recommend this activity. the fruits were very fresh 🤤

Amazing guide, fantastic ranch. Loved seeing all the crocodiles and birds. Had lunch at their on site restaurant afterwards, which was so delicious
