It is a shame that is almost closed

Nice place and very interesting, great for kids learning opportunities regarding our flora & fauna besides learning how to behave towards the environment.

A small zoo. Not too expectacular. Food is expensive, kids would love this place. Now they are closing Inbio, be aware of that.

I went with my son and we enjoyed our day. I think that it is a bit ridiculous that foreigners are charged more however. Our laws clearly states that all people are to be treated equally no matter where they are from or their migratory status. I feel that foreigners are taken advantage of and this is a discriminatory practice.... More

We had a full day in San Jose before our tour of the country started, and visiting Inbio Parque was a great introduction to many of the plants and animals that we would later see in the wild. We took a guided tour and spent well over two hours walking the grounds learning about everything we saw. Not two minutes... More

After visiting much better attractions throughout Costa Rica, we were underwhelmed with InBio Parque. There just wasn't much to see and experience for $25/pp. The use of recycled materials, however, was one of my favorite features of this park. They had a fence made of bicycle tires, a gate made of PVC, statues made of various parts, and more. I... More

We have led several birding tours to Costa Rica and have started with a trip to InBio the first day. The guide was very informative and gave a good overview of Costa Rican wildlife and habitats that rounded out the experience and gave background to the participants. We didn't feel like the cost was excessive.

We went there with our two small kids and they loved it. Lots of little nice animals to see, for example a few "Bambis" as well as butterflies. Loved it!

It's a good place to know better about the biodiversity of CR and it's traditional life style without going far away

I liked the fiesta for Germans, which abounded in good european food, and pupusas from El Salvador, but not at all worth the exhorbitant price for non-nationals to get in. The permanent attractions are extremely limited and not attractive when compared with similarly priced tourist destinations in other parts of the country of Costa Rica. I have been taking my...

Not great... but it's a nice park. I guess that being within the urban area it's probably one of the best options if you want to see some nature and do some trail walking.
