“Paradise for photographers”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

Eduardo was our guide and he started telling about the different plants and herbs. We were eager to see frogs and not sure if we would see them during daylight. But we were not disappointed. We saw the famous red eye leaf frog, the glass frog, the jeans frog the grean and black dart frog and a big toad, Also amazing amount of coloured birds (due to the feeding :-( ) and as desert we saw a sloth with a newly born baby. All accompanied by the nice guides and some coffee/drinks and cookies.Even the kids used their cameras (which were untouched during the previsou weeks in Costa Rica). Anyhow check the great pictures.

“Named accordingly Frog's heaven”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

You basically arrive, walk out of the car, and 3 minutes later you're surrounded by amazing species of colorful frogs and birds. I've been to a LOT of places looking for frogs to take photos in Costa Rica, I must say this is my favorite place for photography so far.
The guy who gave the tour, Eduardo, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

“A must !!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

José is a very very nice guy!! On the property of his family he made several environments where all kind of frogs feel at home. The three most famous frogs of Costa Rica are easily found and José does everything to let you make the 'National geographic picture of the year'.
There are many kinds of frogs on the property, including several glass frogs. Take time to explore it all !!!
After our tour we had dinner with his family. A nice end of a wonderful afternoon.
Highly recommended.

“This was fun!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

I so enjoyed the enthusiasm and knowledge of the guide/owner of the attraction. He explained so much about the plants in the region, all the ones that are used for cooking - herbs, palm hearts, mandarins and more. He maintained natural ecosystems for the frogs so that we would be likely to find them. And happily he was not too PC about feeding the birds. The national parks don't allow it but a man can put a bird feeder with native plants in his back garden. We watched lots coming for food. It was great!
The only thing I didn't like was that it was too expensive. When we arrived it was just going to be the two of us and I didnt grudge the $50. Just as we were about to start 4 extra people arrived unexpectedly. So the guide got $150 and we had to share his time. A little greedy I felt but I would do it again.

“frogs heaven”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a very untouristy attraction set on a families property. We were shown around the flora on the property and their local uses. As the sun went down, we wandered around the steam and saw several frogs including green poison dart frogs and blue jean frogs, insects etc They do their best to give us a good experience while protecting the animals they depend on. We finished with a tasty meal served by grandma in their Tico house. Very friendly and well worth the stop
