This was a very interesting attraction having a wide variety of frogs all kept in custom designed environments dependent on the needs of the different species. The frogs were hard to find (in some cases) which just added to the fun. The guide was very...More

Great and unexpected tour. Can get a little long. Expect to HUNT for frogs with the guide. Frogs are in separate cases to keep safe. The night tour is better as frogs are nocturnal. Schedule for two tours- educational one during the day, and come...More

don't spend too much time looking at the butterflies cause you need to see all the frogs slowly, we only had an hour, if your staying visit in both day and night as some frogs are hard to see as they are nocturnal, they have...More

I went to the ranario (frog zoo) on my solo trip to Monteverde, after dark. The frogs are in terrariums, behind glass, separated by species or family group. They are kept in good conditions and are bred here. The babies are released once a year...More

Our family had a mixed experience of this place - I loved it, kids and hubby said they were bored about mid-way (that might be because they were quite tired by the time we visited). This is not a pond, but rather a 'garden' with...More

Despite going in the daytime our guide managed to find plenty of frogs some of them tiny. I guess for the money it didn't meet my expectations

Very close to the town centre. Our guide was so passionate about the fun stories of all the frogs. Top recommended!

It is a bit difficult to find frogs, some are very small. The best is to come at 19h 19h30 because most of them live during the night. Although pricy, Remember that you will probably not see any of them in the park.

Most of the glass screens are filthy, not good for photos and you need something to stand on for most of them - give it a wide berth, not worth it
