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

I had a great time and really enjoyed all that Parque Reptilandia offers. They have an impressive collection and the animals are properly cared for. The exhibits are well done, with the perfect balance of providing nice accommodations for the animals, while allowing guests a nice view. Staff were friendly and willing to answer any questions. Definitely recommend a visit and a fun activity.

Terrific set up, excellent environments for the animals there, super informative, very beautiful grounds. Some of the animals, like at any other animal park, will be hard to see in their set ups but that is a testament to their camouflage and need to hide. You'll see a lot!

There is nothing special about this zoo. It was hard to see the animals and water and glass were so dirty you could hardly see. Sloping ground had no rails for safely going up and down. Signs and descriptions need to be updated. A major renovation is needed. There were no chairs where you could sit and rest.
Parque Reptilandia should be your last choice.

This specialized reptile zoo is incredible! The owner has invested over 20 years of his life studying reptiles of all kinds and built this place himself. You can view rare and beautiful snakes, lizards, turtles and crocodiles up close. You may even get lucky and get to help feed them. Quetzal (the owner) is an internationally renown herpetologist. He has studied reptiles his whole life and published articles on his research. He has a very unique captive breeding program for some rare and gorgeous snakes.

Did not expect much out of this parc....was I wrong. Tons of reptiles I've never seen before and must go on a Friday....it's snake feeding time!! Poor mice don't have a chance...impressive to see nature at its most primitive state.
A must if you are close to Dominical
