Owner description: Reptile Park & Botanical Garden near Dominical Become thrilled seeing these magnificent animals up-close; a fun and easy trip for the whole family Parque Reptilandia has the largest and most diverse presentation of Reptiles and Amphibians in Costa Rica. Educate your kids and yourself on this special group of animals. They can be examined safely from close-up and are beautifully exhibited, simulating their natural habitat as much as possible. When strolling down the easy walking paths you can also enjoy the many beautiful plants and trees in the botanical garden

This place seemed a little dated however they were doing repairs and updates to enclosures while we were there.
It was amazing to see such dangerous and unique creatures up close. A komodo dragon, a fleur-de-lance, poison dart frogs....we were enthralled by these creatures despite the aging facility.
One word of advice - visit early in the morning when the temps are more bearable and the animals are not hiding as much. There are shaded sections, but 35 degrees C is hot no matter what!

The Parque Reptiliandia has an amazing assortment of reptiles who live in wonderful and well-done enclosures and look very healthy. This is a great place to visit just outside of Dominical.

Go on Friday. Do it. The owner will let you know when he is dropping a rat in the cages and how hungry the snakes are. Sometimes a snake will chomp down on the mice body, sometimes it will wrap its body around the rat, strangling it. Worth every penny.

Very lovely park, with excellent Belgian guide to show us all the reptiles hiding in their cages. Amazing 5m anaconda seen the second time around. Lancka the Cayman was found, she was a bit shy though! Wide variety of snakes and frogs. Super park best visited when it is not too hot.

Great variety of snakes and other reptiles. Friday is the day to go if possible as it is feeding day!
