I really enjoyed my visit at the snake garden. It's a non profit sanctuary center with a beautiful butterfly garden and many different types of snakes. They also have frogs, crocodiles, caimanes and turtles. It's a nice place to spend some hours.

Saw nice butterflies, Crocodiles and Kaiman. Nevertheless the visit is not worth the money: there are no explanations and information.

This park takes about 45 minutes to see everything. For the size and variety, the cost is way too much in my opinion, but the displays are well maintained and the reptiles seem healthy and well cared for. You enter first into the butterfly and...More

We were looking for something to occupy 2 - 3 hours as part of our journey from Chilamate to Arenal and had seen this the day before when visiting nearby. It has a butterfly house but not as big as, or as interesting, as many...More
