The frogs are all behind glass, in terrariums. Yes, this is safer for them and they should be protected, but there is not much to look at. Most of the frogs can't be easily seen. The butterflies are all in a tent and there are only a couple of them. Save your money and time and continue to the Monteverde... More

If you like frogs (we do) it's cool to see the different species that live in Costa Rica. That said, it is more like a zoo (terrariums) and not outdoor like we were hoping. Our guide David was very knowledgeable and helped folks take photos of the little frogs. You will certainly see more frogs here than out in the... More

My husband and I did the frogs and insect tour. Our tour guide was extremely informative and answered all our questions. he brought us to each frog tank an had us try to find as many frogs as possible. My husband was able to hold frogs and insects.

We did the butterfly display and the frog pond. The butterfly display didn't have many live butterflies, but the mounted specimens were nice. The frogs were definitely interesting, and the guide was very good at spotting them and pointing them out. Go in the evening, when the frogs are active.

We visited the frog pond and insect exhibits. For $27 for 2 people it was overpriced for what it was. There are hardly any live insects (in fact, there are only a couple). The rest of the insects were dead and displayed in cases in a small room. The frog exhibit had only 3 kinds of poison dart frogs, which... More

I am not a fan of zoos and so avoid them. I do not like a place where an animal is trapped in a tiny enclosure far smaller than it's natural environment. However for this place it sounded different. Glass lined ponds was the impression I was given and as such I thought it would be nice to see the... More

Its a small place with extremely friendly people and super knowledge guide. We saw the insect and frog/ totes exhibition twice - during the day and night. We were also allowed to watch the feeding of frogs. The guide was very knowledgeable, funny and engaging. The people in the caffee/ at the reception were very friendly and helpful too. This... More

We went to see the butterflies and then the frogs during the day. Since we were able to comeback at night, we did as the guide advised us and it was perfect! Definitely worth coming back.

Ok, so I forgot that most frogs are nocturnal. We went in the afternoon. We saw a few frogs, but not too many. We did get a ticket so we could come back in the evening or another time, which would have been great, but it was our last day. We did have fun looking in the exhibits with the... More

While walking around Santa Elena during our stay in the Monteverde area, we decided to take in the butterfly and frog exhibit. Not large, but a decent use of a couple of hours. While awaiting our guided tour, we watched a flock of green parrots chatting it up in a tree. You first walk through a nice little stretch of... More
