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!

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.

The name is misleading because it's not exactly a pond, its more like frogs in glass cages, but it was really cool! We had a guide who was very fun and helpful and he taught us a lot about the frogs!

The name can be misleading. The frogs are in glass boxes and not in ponds. The entrance is quite expensive at $12.50. However I really enjoyed it. I went in the afternoon where most frogs were sleeping. My guide, Alejando, gave me a tour of each of the frogs. Then they offer you to come back at night for free... More

We visited here in May 2016, went during the day time for the tour (bilingual tour) and used our ticket for our free return entry at night time to see the nocturnal frogs when they are most active. The frogs are in well sized enclosures (not ponds) with glass walls and a good amount of shrubbery, which makes them fun... More

Hopefully this is the right business to review. The Frog Pond of Monteverde has a big red and blue frog statue on the outside and the building looks almost skechy from the outside. But inside though, it's treasure land, despite it being sad for all the frogs to be trapped in glass tanks. I wish I could see them in... More

Without planning it, we arrived just in time for the night tour. The tour was in English and the guide was great at finding the frogs. However, this isn't a 'pond' - it's a collection of glass tanks where frogs are kept. It was good to see all the different types of frogs, but it's really not the same as... More

We drove up to Monteverde and arrived in the evening so this was something to do as it was dark when we arrived. Our first guide put us with another group as we speak English and the other people in our group spoke Spanish-There was another guide that had just started an English tour so we did miss the first...

Not at all impressed... We went in the day which wasn't the best idea but were allowed to keep our tickets so we could go in again that evening, which we didn't bother doing. There was about 20 tanks, we couldn't find most of the Frogs but didn't really want to see them in tanks.. We thought they would be... More
