We visited & paid the extra to have a guide, which was very worthwhile. He pointed out three sloths, one of which had fallen asleep within touching distance, which was quite exciting (we didn't touch!). There is an excellent butterfly cage, absolutely full of butterflies, including the gorgeous blue morph. We were told their were caiman in the pond, but it was a bit cold and they were hiding. There's also a short talk by an indigenous tribesman & a retail opportunity. If you want a traditional balsa wood masks, this was one of the cheaper places to buy them.
It's a very small site and in total the tour took about an hour on flat gravel paths. It's not a zoo, with the exception of the butterflies the animals are free to come and go, but it is much easier and more certain to see wildlife than in the primary forest, so was particularly good for children.
