Amazing color frogs!

It was great to get to know a little bit about frogs, sizes and colors. I loved blue jeans frog and the red eyes. it was more than I expected. Great place for kids too!

We visited on the 11/01/17 and did a guided tour for $13,50. Our guide Alonso made knew a lot and made the information easy to understand and fun to listen to. Even tho we came in the afternoon we saw a lot of cute frogs. They recommend to come back after 6pm since most frogs are nocturnal. Thank you!

Your entrance ticket gets you a guided tour (which we recommend only if the group total is six or less, otherwise it's too difficult to get to the front and see the frogs).

We visited this at 7pm at night when the frogs are active. The tour guide's included - you just need to ask! Our guide David was great fun and was knowledgable about frogs and more!

We went to visit the Frog Pond in Monteverde. We had a very nice guided tour. The guide was very friendly, knew a lot about frogs and other insects...he really captivated our 7 year old son. I highly recommend this tour.

Our guide Davi was fabulous. We saw the most amazing, beautiful frogs, took wonderful photos, really enjoyed the visit. Saw so much more than we ever could in the wild, learned about many beautiful frogs who we saw close up. Loved it! Davi even took us outside to see a sloth!

It was neat to see the frogs, but it is not a frog pond. It is a room with frogs in giant aquariums. I thought the price to get in was not worth what you get.

I went here on my Birthday, cool setups, a lot of different species of frogs and some emphasis on environmental issues which I really feel is important. I really loved the red eyed tree frogs, really cool looking.
