We loved this place especially our guide Frazier. He was "amazing" and loved his job and the animals he attended.

It's a nice short activity to do with the kids. You can see some frogs, birds and butterflies! We enjoyed the guided tour.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. A great way to see local fauna and learn a bit about them. Only took a little over an hour for $25. A must do if you are in Jaco and need a short break.

Took my teenage daughter here and we loved it. There was so much to see and the guy who took us around was very knowledgable. Highly recommend it for anyone interested in animals. My favourite was holding a baby parrot
