It is not the same as seeing a national park, but you can begin here. There are some animals, costumed Ticas in bright dresses, informative slide shows, and a small café.

For adult foreigners the cost is $25 usd and students $19 usd. Not much to see. Other than a good amount of butterflies there isn't anything else. The park must probable had better days but today it is poorly maintained. ZooAve is much better experience for much less money. Sorry, just not a good experience, AND EXPENSIVE

It was really fun to go here and we were really excited to visit her as we had just landed in San Jose and were ready to see the different biomes in Costa Rica. You could compare this place to a zoo in the United States. However, you are actually in the exhibits and the animals can like walk up... More

I came here with another group, saw and learned many things that made me appreciate my time in Costa Rica- mainly bc of my guide. The other group was led around by someone else and didn't get as much out of it. Expect this being only a man-created representation of the ecosystems.

It was fun traveling there with friends' kids. There were special places for kids to play on ropes and sit on giant frog sculptures. We didn't see many animals at all. The only ones we saw were the farm animals in pens. They did have a cute area where you could hold rabbits and pet some of the farm animals.... More

We enjoyed seeing all the Biodiversity of Costa Rica in one park. It's well maintained and if you take a tour with a guide, you'll learn lots. There is a nice soda eating spot. Kids loved the butterfly conservatory. While we were there a funny guy looks through the park for where sloths are seen and then tells the guide.

This is a natural preserve designed to educate locals and visitors about the Biodiversity in Costa Rica. They did, in fact, do that, as our tour guide was very well spoken and knowledgeable. There was a "pond" area that had crocodiles and water fowl, and there were indoor areas that had specimens of animals, such as the various snakes, that... More

The parc is a lovely place in terms of nature, plant and animals, but we have been a bit disappointed by a few displays, such as the "volcano" part that lacks explanations and looks out-dated. Considering the high entry price, they could renovate the place a little bit.
