SAN JOSE, Costa Rica — Osama bin Laden lurks in the murky brackish waters of the Tarcoles River near the Central Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
And despite being the oldest crocodile in the river, the 80-year-old reptile is quite the dodgy creature.
“Sometimes he disappears. That’s why they (tour operators) call him Osama bin Laden. He’s always hiding,” guide Edward Sanchez says with a chuckle.
At Playa Cativo Lodge, in Costa Rica’s rainforests on the coasts of Golfo Dulce in the Osa Peninsula, animal lovers and conservation-minded families can enjoy an upscale, all-inclusive, eco-lodge experience.
