Very good if you plan your visit right

The trick here is to go just the once. Arrive about 5, take yourself around the tanks and you`ll spot half a dozen frogs if you`re lucky. Then at 6 go again with the guide and... read more

Ok, so I forgot that most frogs are nocturnal. We went in the afternoon. We saw a few frogs, but not too many. We did get a ticket so we could come back in the evening or another time, which would have been great, but it was our last day. We did have fun looking in the exhibits with the... More

While walking around Santa Elena during our stay in the Monteverde area, we decided to take in the butterfly and frog exhibit. Not large, but a decent use of a couple of hours. While awaiting our guided tour, we watched a flock of green parrots chatting it up in a tree. You first walk through a nice little stretch of... More

This was our first go-around with zip lining as the last time we were here our youngest was, well, too young. The lady at the front advised us that the next opening for the zip line tour was led by Spanish-speaking guides (who could not speak or understand English). I understand more Spanish than I can speak at this point... More

It is basically a zoo with butterflies. There are 3 netted enclosures with different species of butterflies.

$13 for the Ranario with the guide included. And our guide made it worth it! She is very knowledgeable about the terrariums and was very adept at finding the frogs. The poison frogs are active during the day and the nonpoison are active at night so there isn't one brilliant time to come to the Ranario. With your admission you... More

The trick here is to go just the once. Arrive about 5, take yourself around the tanks and you`ll spot half a dozen frogs if you`re lucky.

I enjoyed our visit but was not convinced that the housing of the frogs was the best option for viewing them. The frogs are very tiny and behind the glass of the tanks they are difficult to see. Other than this it was a worthwhile visit. Our guide was very patient with us and let us set the pace, the... More

We did a self tour of the Ranario and it wasn't that wonderful. The descriptions were lacking and some didn't even have the name of the frogs in the enclosure. There was an aquarium set up in the front lounge area which had dead frogs floating in it. Something to do after dark, but not really worth the money. We... More

This wasn't our favorite attraction. While they do have a butterfly garden and zip lining we only visited the frog pond. The frogs are all inside of terrariums and most are very small and hard to spot. Be sure to take the tour so the guide can point them out to you, otherwise you'll never find them. My little one...

Take the guide ... you'll see nothing otherwise, but the guides are most patient and take time to find the frogs for you within the landscapes of their cages.
