“Hats off to Josemar..... Best experience we had in CR!”

Great little excursion and an opportunity to see things off of the beaten path. Josemar knows his stuff, is enthusiastic and a great host!

If you have a few hours to fill this is well worth the time and entrance fee (which all go towards maintenance of the facility).

Thanks Josemar!!!

My kids got to hold a baby monkey and a baby raccoon! We also got to see up and close and personal; frogs, toads, turtles, snakes, and butterflies! The guide was amazing and extremely knowledgable. We had a wonderful time and are so grateful we did not listen to the few negative reviews! This was truly a highlight for our trip.

Great experience and very educational. We got to hold quiet a few animals. Great for families and kids.

*Friendly English speaking guides
*Entrance fee is $20 - totally worth it - supports locals and rescued animals
*Kid friendly
*Hands on - touch snakes and frogs
*Take a water bottle with you. It can get a little warm during the tour.

Caesar the resident monkey is friendly and they offer you a hands on experience with him along with the snakes, frogs and butterflies. This place beats any zoo experience because the creatures are caught wild and returned to the wild after two months.

Highly recommend this place...followed by a tasty lunch in Jaco at Pajara Pinta and shopping excursion at Fruity Monkey Poop boutique.

Went here with our 2-year old. He had lots of fun. The guide was nice, funny, and knowledgeable. Took lots of time to show us around, photograph some of the animals, etc. $20 felt a bit steep, but as with many tours in this area kids are free so that makes that a bit more acceptable.
