We drove there without a prior reservation on December 29th. It's about 10 minutes south of Liberia on the InterAmerican Highway #1. Due to massive road construction, you kind of have to just get off when you see the sign and drive to the park on the part of the highway that isn't actually open yet but it's okay, just... More

We went there on Dec 29, which is high season in Guanacaste. We didn't have a reservation and arrived at 11am. We were told we'd be on the 12:15 tour, but ended up boarding the truck past 1pm. All this time we waited in a small restaurant area they have. There's really nothing to do whilehh you wait except eat... More

This is a great attraction, especially if you like to get up close and personal with animals. The park is under new management and is getting a facelift along with added activities and animals. The pens are very spacious and the animals are all in great condition. The staff is very friendly. It was a lot of fun to hand... More

Africa Mia is a great little safari experience just south of Liberia. Driving from Liberia it's off the main road, on the right side... and down a pretty unsavory, bumpy, unpaved path. However, once you get there it's pretty lovely. You can buy carrots for $1, I believe, so that you can feed the animals. Giraffes and zebras are probably... More

The guide was very friendly and helpful . There is also a waterfall in the park so one must take swimwear and towels . It's... More

Nothing like getting salivated by zebras and giraffes who want your carrots! This is quite a nice property, and the animals look well taken care of. If reproduction rates are a sign of animal welfare, these little creatures must be quite happy
