“LOVED this frog encounter!”

Reviewed September 1, 2012

We are a family of two parents and two adult college-aged daughters. We went to the frog pond on a very rainy night, in the dark that frogs seemed more lively. We had a guide that was well educated in all the details of about 25 different species of frogs. We only saw about 2-3 frogs in the wild, so this zoo-like frog display was really, really, cool. We liked this a lot more than we thought we would! My kids were completely enthralled by this little creatures. Highly recommended, especially on a rainy night when other activities might not be so enticing.

This was a good experience to know & see most of the Tico frogs in one place. The main lesson to learn is that all frogs in Costa Rica are poisonous and you should not touch them, especially the cute tiny red frog :).

Wonderful tour with a very knowledgable guide all for myself. The only think I didn't like was the frogs all being behind foggy glass - makes it difficult to get good photos. Bring a fast lens!

Not much value for the money spent. All frogs are behind glass cases, whole tour is fairly brief.
