“Go for the butterflies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had a very knowledgeable guide take us through both the combined reptile and butterfly day tours. The combined trip was probably worth the extra cost, but the enclosed butterfly area was utterly awesome. They show you how they cultivate the eggs & pupae in their lab and then go through the butterfly enclosure - quite large and teeming with beautiful butterflies all over the place. You can hang out there afterwards, or even come back later, to just watch all the colors flitter around you.
A bit inconspicuous from the road - look for the hotel and souvenir store on the right as you had south toward Manuel Antonio. There's parking on the left and a small path going into their entrance.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is such an amazing place. Beautiful butterflies, crocodiles, monkeys, frog and many, many other things to see. It's educational as well as entertaining. The night nature walk is supposed to be the incredible. I'm going back in December and I definitely have that in my to do list.

“Night nature walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The night nature walk was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and we saw many frogs and animals. Much better than Manuel Antonio park. You walk with flashlights otherwise you are in darkness very cool Here you held animals that you saw through a telescope at Manuel Antonio park. Ages went from 71 to 16. All enjoyed.
