Enjoyable for all ages

This is a roughly 1.5 km walk through tropical rainforest where you will see 38 amazingly realistic animatronic dinosaurs. The walk is enjoyable and our guide made it interesting for the adults by including information on the birds and other fauna and flora we saw. He was very friendly with the kids and made sure that everyone had a good time.
Thanks Kevin

My 3-year-old, and 5-year-old had the most amazing time here! Truly magical!! We would do it again in a few years, and would expect them to love it all the same.

A great walk through the Cretaceous Era

Costa Rica is a tiny country set right in the middle of the Central America's isthmus where the warmth breeze from the Caribbean meets the dry gust from the Pacific. That, among a tone of other things, makes our country the ideal place for having a unique and unforgettable holiday experience. Whether you're a local tourist or a foreigner visiting our country, if your itinerary allows you to save a couple of days for this experience, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to do so. There is a mystical hidden community settled at the base of one of our most amazing natural attractions; Rincón de la Vieja Volcano. One of the most amazing features of this community is that it has been caught in time; for a lot of reasons that's just what a lot of people is looking for; an opportunity to get in touch with an authentic non over produced experience, and that's what you are going to get there; real people, real food and a lot of pure fun. Once you have known the locals and enjoyed their food , you definitely need to try a walk through the rain forest. But this won't be an ordinary hike through the jungle. Blue River's Dino Park is a one of a kind educational experience(not only for your kids). Starting with the professionalism of the tour guides and going through the amazing amount of effort displayed in the neatness of the place and the maintenance of the gigantic animatronics, it is one of those experience that you won't hesitate to recommend to anyone who wants to do something different and fun during the holidays. Dinosaurs are so vivid and so well built that makes them the perfect background for your family photo, and let's not forget that the scenery itself is breathtaking; the rainforest: acient trees, waterfalls and the unique wildlife of the area. It's just the perfect tour for adding something different to your holiday's itinerary. Try it, you won't regret it.

The perfect blend of cheesy and entertaining
Feb 2019 • Family
So, an animatronic dino park in the middle of Costa Rica. Sounds cheesy, right? And it is, in the best possible way. We had so much fun and our guide, Kevin, was not only informative about the dinos, but about all the plants and wildlife around us. He would show us plants and point out birds - and even communicate with the birds and hear them communicate back! We also got a little bit of a Spanish lesson throughout, as he taught us both the Spanish and the English for what he was pointing out to us or where we needed to go. We were able to learn about dinos and, more importantly, learn about Costa Rica. Kevin did a fantastic job, and I recommend asking if he's free when you're ready for your tour.

Disappointed to find out dinos never existed in Costa Rica
Aug 2018 • Family
Great grounds. Rubber automated dinos with proximity detectors to make them growl and move threateningly. Kinda fun. Great scenery and wildlife. Sloths, hummingbirds, owls, hawks. Even a humming bird nest.
Tour guide Walter is the best tour guide we have ever had with us on a tour. His english is great, his knowledge of plants and animals is of University graduate level with lots of hands on experience. An 11 hour tour that felt like it was just starting when we returned and had to leave the bus. Great value for the dollar. Thank you Walter.

Hola! Agreed - Our tour guides not only include lots dinosaur education they showcase the amazing nature found out in the wild here on the north side of Costa Rica's Rincon de la Vieja volcano national park. Though the very popular movies Jurassic Park/World's depiction of dinosaurs in Costa Rica is a fantasy, its also the reason for the huge surge in interest and learning about Dinosaurs. The young and the young at heart love coming!! Thank you for your review and we hope you return soon for more of our Eco-adventure tours. Yours truly, Kevin

Kids will love it! The creatures roar and move when you approach them. Signs are everywhere warning you of the danger.
