I am a professor of biology and expected to underwhelmed. Quite the opposite! We had an amazing guide who really new his amphibian natural history and could connect to me as well as a person in the group who was not that into frogs.

David, our guide, was amazingly enthusiastic and knowledgeable about frogs. We just happened to walk by this place on a hike around town and wandered in. Our young teenagers, surprisingly, liked it.

Great tour! We were able to see so many frogs and learned a lot. I would highly recommend it as a quick activity.

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 :).
