The little village by the river is named after it. Well, passing by the bridge above the river you will see people gathering, looking down... stop, and go with the flow. And you will see them. Big, huge ass crocs!!! Lots of them!! And you can buy some tickets no navigate the river with local guides, who know them very well, giving lots of information. Sounds touristy? Well, I thought so. My wife convinced me. Glad she did!! It's very nice.

Keep posting, please.


P.S.: sorry about the Bourdain joke...

We are actually fans of Bourdain. Funny you mentioning the croc, we just saw one. There is a small estuary close to the beach where we are in Carillo, about 200-300 metres from our B&B and we saw a big croc, at least 3 metres basking on the muddy bank. We were too slow and missed the picture opportunity
