“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The outside appears a bit kitchy but the guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. Don't do it in place of a cloud forest preserve or canopy tour, but go if you have time.

“Not worth your time and money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Frogs were NOT in ponds. Frogs were in glass-window boxes and therefore not fun to try to spot. Guide provided basic info. Kids were not into listening and trying to spot one/two frogs behind glass. Expensive $12/adult.

“Ranario and zipline were a treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Two of our family toured the ranario (frog pond) and two of us did their zipline/canopy tour. Since it was low season, we effectively had a private tour. The ranario guide went into good scientific detail (greatly appreciated by a college student majoring in life sciences) and the canopy tour blended nicely into its surroundings.

“Interesting at day and night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had fun looking at all species of frogs. The tour is interesting to do twice (day and night), since you see different species at different times.

“Be sure to visit at night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would have liked to see it in the daytime as well if we could have gone back (the ticket price is good for two visits)
