Have an up-close look at some of Costa Rica's scariest creatures at Parque Reptilandia, an entertaining and educational place for all ages. Home to lizards, crocodiles, tortoises, and snakes, this park simulates the natural habitats of its residents. Don't miss the Komodo dragon and the giant anaconda, and ask the knowledgeable staff for additional information about these fierce creatures. Stroll around to find a nursery for newborn reptiles and the botanic garden with over 100 plants and trees. Parque Reptilandia is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Dominical Edition.

    For 12 USD you can admire here various native and exotic reptiles up close, including snakes, turtles, crocodiles and lizards. Information signs in Spanish and English reveal interesting details about the animals. Unfortunately, some of the terrariums are something even small and old. Sure, a renovation would not damage. A worth yet, especially if you want to anyway visit the nearby Nauyaca waterfalls.

    Wow, what a surprise. I've been to a few serpentariums in Costa Rica in the past, and they were fine, but Reptilandia is the best I've visited. The habitats are really well designed, with a lot of att...  more »

    The opinions were divided in our family 2 or 3 at 5. 2.5 as a compromise. Yes, there are snakes, turtles, a monitor lizard, iguana, etc. , animals you otherwise impossible all in nature. But ... the whole looks dirty and unkempt. An hour you're also around (and then you have time spent on the snakes in their habitat to look for). What began as a hobby maybe serpetarium, seems to be overgrown and too big to properly maintain. Then it is $12 for adults and $6 to 14 years far.

    This is a great reptile zoo, with many snakes lizards turtles etc. My favorite thing was the Crocodile named Crocita. She would come over to you when you made a kissing sound that the zoo keeper taught us :) super fun!

    One thing about life in the Costa Ballena region is quite clear...we are not alone! The abundance of rainforest and marine life that oozes from the landscape every day and night can be humbling to the human species. But every critter you encounter has a purpose, and Parque Reptilandia offers the opportunity to acquaint yourself with Costa Rica’s abundant reptiles. Just 7 minutes from Dominical and 20 minutes from Uvita, right next to Nauyaca Waterfalls, Parque Reptilandia offers the largest exhibition of reptiles in Costa Rica, including snakes, lizards, turtles and frogs. In all, 90 species are represented, with educational programs for children and adults aimed at familiarization with some of our rainforest neighbors.
