“Cool, but not amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The frog pond is neat if you like frogs. It's not some super amazing experience, but you see some cool frogs. There is not much to see during the day, as frogs are nocturnal and most are just sleeping. However, they do allow you to use your receipt to return in the evening and see the frogs again. This is a really cool offer to ensure that you get the most out of your frog experience.

“Excellent guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

This place has the frog pond, insect exhibition, and the butterfly garden. There are many such places in Costa Rica, which makes this place distinguished is the frog pond and the guider. This guide can take the scorpion and perform, which is an interesting experience. The price is also reasonable (although I will not suggest the butterfly garden)

“Interesting place, free guided tour with admission”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

This was a great place to check out in the evening, both because that's when the frogs are awake and because that's when it's raining and there isn't too much else to do. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and excited about the exhibits; we went from terrarium to terrarium together in the dark as he answered and asked questions and found the frogs to make sure we saw them.

“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.
