We had a great time walking through the nature reserve with flashlights surrounded by the sounds of frogs and other wildlife. The guide was very entertaining and respectful of the animals which we liked - he encouraged you not to take photos directly in the faces of the frogs so the flash didn't harm their eyes. Of course not all visitors seemed to hear this which was sad!

We saw so many frogs that after a while they were pretty easy to spot! They also have crockadiles, aligators and a few snakes in class enclosures which they have rescued.

Support this tour! Its a worthy cause and great fun. you won't be disappointed.

The tour was just too great ! , go in the jungle with flashlight, listening the sound of many animals and what makes the tour more exciting is that it is at night, so it puts more flavor ! The guides are too experienced and respond to each of the questions, they know too much, and each of the species, it shows that they know what they are talking about , they are very helpful, and even the smallest insect in the ground they show it to you! I loved to go there, breathe fresh air, I The butterfly is the most perfect place I've visited .. There are many species of butterflies and each one is magical, The place is set with a very peaceful music that gives it a very relaxed environment .. It's really like being in a fairy tale, full of nymphs and butterflies ! I recommend bringing a good camera because the pictures you can take are indescribable .. You can see so many species and so much natural wealth, you just wish not to get out of there !!

We did a night tour with a local independent guide, Hainer and had a blast! We too our 2 teen sons and did this night tour trough the reserve with a small group and saw many wonderful things, including; frogs, snakes, crabs, lizards, bats, crocodiles, turtles and all kinds of plants and trees and some flowers. Don't miss this!

I went to the butterfly farm twice and was mesmerized by the music and the dance of the butterflys all around me. One sat on my arm for a good 10 minutes, just resting I guess. I watched the naturalist gather the eggs after we saw a Morpho butterfly lay them. I learned a bit about the process of preserving the eggs from viruses and for hatching. Do yourself a favor and visit this magical place.

We went on the night tour with our girls. They enjoyed the red eye and goliath frogs everywhere. The guide was excellent and let the girls take pictures and hold the frogs. Well worth the cost.
