  • Amazing park, one of the largest butterfly enclosures I've seen, the alligators and reptile displays were also great and the guide was very knowledgeable. We visited at the start of the rainy season so we were the only people in the park on the day we went which made the experience very enjoyable. The receptionist was also very knowledgeable and gave us lots of advice about places to go in La Fortuna, shared knowledge about the animals in the park and was overall a lovely guy. I would recommend the park to anyone looking for a relaxing activity to do in the day, I have hears great things about their night walks although I have not personally been on this walk.
  • The place is almost dead. Unfortunately, it looks like it had a previous bad owner - but the current one is ramping up and providing a better service. The butterfly, croc and frog displays are better than what we’ve seen around. I would recommend shoes, no sandals and to book a person to show you around. This is worth the visit if you want to go to a more relaxed walking trail than the more popular ones…
