Nice exploration of Costa Rica's ecozones

Extensive trails through various ecosystems. Highlights included lots of big iguanas and enclosed butterfly garden. Was pretty pricey, though.

The place offers a very nice opportunity to escape from regular city life and enjoy wilderness and nature within a 30 minute drive from San Jose City. Kids will enjoy watching the animal exhibits, playing on the playground or horseback riding. The whole family can relax and enjoy the gardens or walk through the forest trails or through the orchard.... More

We enjoyed touring this rain forest park and loved our young tour guide who works there! He pointed out some very unusual plants, trees, and birds, and had a lot of knowledge to share that made the visit so good. Well worth seeing!

We visited this place on our first day in Costa Rica and it was a really good introduction to the wildlife, plants and trees we would see later on our trip. We were lucky enough to have Kenneth as our guide who was very knowledgeable and told us about coffee, chocolate, and trees as well as the animals. We particularly... More

I would not waste my money going here. A tropical place as beautiful as Cost rica, how can they house such a place where the reptiles and animals are in an unhealthy state. Snakes were all skinny as if unfed, the ponds with gators were not clean, overall, the animals were not kept jn good conditions for a park that... More

I visited here with a friend and her two young girls. We all had a good time. We saw a mother sloth and her baby, a family of whitetail deer, and a variety of birds, insects, and amphibians. There is a petting zoo with rabbits, goats, and piglets for the kids. The cafe serves decent local food at a reasonable... More

With gardens themes after the major habitats found in Costa Rica, well-maintained trails, and exhibits, INBioparque is an excellent way to spend a lazy afternoon in the middle of busy Santo Domingo de Heredia. Best to go early in the mornings or afternoons to avoid the large groups of students that visit the park often. Learn also about the outstanding... More

They give a great tour here and we saw numerous birds, a sloth, iguanas, turtles, and bugs and butterflies in their bug house and butterfly house. We were there late in the day - early in the day would be better to see more animals. The guide was very informative and the gardens are pretty well kept. They have some... More

Nice array of choices at buffet. Sorry they are closing the park. We had rice and beans, fruit and some wonderful natural fruit drink. The servers were very friendly.
