“Small place, doing big things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

If this place is what it claims to be then I love it. A rehabilitation center for orphaned or injured creatures, with a butterfly greenhouse to boot. The guide was so friendly and was great with everyone. Met a baby monkey, Cesar, who is to be released when he's ready. Saw about 6 super poisonous snakes and a few frogs. Also non-poisonous of each. Guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Worth the money even if small in my opinion.

“Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

It was great to learn about the local wildlife and know who to call when you need snake extraction! Thanks Josemar! You were awesome! You too Cesar!

“Hats off to Josemar..... Best experience we had in CR!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Great little excursion and an opportunity to see things off of the beaten path. Josemar knows his stuff, is enthusiastic and a great host!

If you have a few hours to fill this is well worth the time and entrance fee (which all go towards maintenance of the facility).

Thanks Josemar!!!

“A Highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

My kids got to hold a baby monkey and a baby raccoon! We also got to see up and close and personal; frogs, toads, turtles, snakes, and butterflies! The guide was amazing and extremely knowledgable. We had a wonderful time and are so grateful we did not listen to the few negative reviews! This was truly a highlight for our trip.
