Too expensive
Oct 2021 • Couples
Way too expensive for what we expected. It is not really a pond! (In the 2nd room it has a mini mini pond with small fish in it). In the first room it has about 4 terariums each with a spider and in one a scorpion inside. There are also prepared beetles, butterflies and other insects hanging on the wall. In the other room there are about 12 terariums with frogs. The frogs had to be searched by us with a flashlight. (Which made the whole thing a little better) But the 20$ entrance fee PER person is just way too much!!! Not worth it! A kind of rip off :(

Poor experience
Oct 2021 • Friends
Poor experience, just a few frogs in some cages. We were expecting a real pond with some frogs to look at, plus $20 p.p is too expensive

Visit was ok
Sep 2021 • Couples
You can see some frogs and toads in approx. 20 different vivariums. For us the visit was ok. But you don't really learn new stuff about these animales - expect when you book a guide. I would appreciate more infos, than just the size and where it lives. 20$ p. P. is also quite a high price for what it gives.

Tipp: you can come back in the evening to see the frogs/toads again as most of them are nocturnal. This is included in the ticket.

So much fun!

They give you a flashlight to help you find the frogs, which is very helpful! Be sure to come back at night to see the nocturnal frogs! Finding them all was like a scavenger hunt!

$20 to see inhumane conditions for frogs
May 2021 • Couples
Inhumane conditions for frogs. I’m not sure if this is due to COVID and financial difficulties, but the habitats were not well kept. In addition to the habitats not being cleaned, fresh water wasn’t present, and food consisted only of flies from rotting plantains. Also, they give you bright flashlights to shine on the nocturnal frog habitats, which can be highly disruptive. Additionally, there were many empty habitats that had once housed frogs...

Not worth it!
Mar 2021 • Couples
We asked if the frogs were in open space in order to approach them and the girl in the front desk said yes.
Unfortunately the frogs were behind the glass and its impossible to find .
We spent 30$ for no reason.
Please be careful!

Interesting night guided tour
Feb 2021 • Couples
You'll find more than 10 different kind of frogs here, all from Costa Rica. We went first during the day to discover them on our own. In the admission price you can enter twice with one guided tour. When we went back at dark we got a full tour with very interesting explenation from the guide. Some of the frogs are really cute as well. The guide is very knowledgeable so i would definitly recommend it. It's almost impossible to find them on your own in nature so this is an easy way to do it!

Excellent informative and funny tour! Discover a complete new world :)
Jan 2021
Definitely go with the tour guide, otherwise you have no idea where to look and what you're actually looking at. ;) The tour guide Oscar has a great knowledge of a (for us) complete new world and did the tour in a relaxed and funny way. We were there during day time and are planning to go back later during our stay at night time. We were very lucky to spot all frogs already, but they come more alive at night. The Frog Pond offers the possibility to return at night with the same ticket. Instead, you can of course also choose to do a tour in the evening right away.

Beautiful specimens

We went during the day and didn't see any frogs but the ticket is good to also come back at night. We did and we saw every frog there including the red eyed tree frog and glass frogs.
