Cute little place not too far from Los Suenos or Jaco. Easy to find off the main road, lots of signs along the way so you won't get lost. The tour guide obviously loves his job and had tremendous knowledge of the snakes, frogs, butterflies, etc. We were able to get lots of great close up pictures as he removed... More

What impressed me most was how much our guide knew about the animals, also how many hand painted signs that were all over Jaco which I'm sure they painted themselves for advertising. Yes the place was somewhat under construction but if you can get past that and listen to the guide you will learn so much!! The monkey was fun,... More

Started the trip looking at snakes they were kind of in small cages and the place was under construction. The butterfly garden was cool and they let you hold the snakes and touch the butterflies. at the end we got to hold a 5 mo. old baby monkey. it was very inexpensive too (20 per person) which my fiance says...

I'd been to CR 7 or 8 times and never been to Neofauna, so this trip I decided to go. It was so worth it!! I wish I had gone there every time! The guide, Josimar, was very knowledgeable and gentle with the animals, which is nice to see. Some of the displays are unlocked and he actually shows you... More

The beaches were big and clean. The bars and beach reminded me of Key West. If you like Key West, then you will love this place

We had some time to kill before our check-in so we ventured up to Neo Fauna with our 3 kids. A little pricey, but it was a fun experience. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. They have snakes/frogs/butterflies all native to Costa Rica. Our guide gave us great information as he showed us each display. My husband and kids... More

On our way into Jaco we passed as sign that said "Neo Fauna Butterfly, Frog and Serpentarium" Well my wife wasn't much on snakes but she really wanted to see the Butterfly's and frogs, so the next morning off we went. If the sign pointing up the hill leads you to believe that this business is right off the road... More
