Never Smile at a Crocodile: Adventures in Costa Rica

“Never smile at a crocodile, never tip your hat and stop to talk awhile. Don’t be taken in by his welcome grin. He’s imagining how well you’d fit within his skin”….From Peter Pan

Costa Rica’s Tarcoles River is the home to over 2,000 crocodiles and we decided to check them out, up close and personal. Our crazy-ass river guide likes to show off how he can get a croc to eat out of his hand. Let’s just hope someday his hand isn’t included in the meal. About four fishermen a year become lunch for these guys.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country and while we only were able to see a small part of it on this trip, we’re looking forward to our next visit.
