Encounter scores of exotic Caribbean amphibians at Frogs Heaven, a tropical garden home to over 20 species of frog. Take a guided tour to illuminate your visit with interesting information on colorful species, including red-eyed tree frogs, poison dart frogs, and a host of more obscure types endemic to Costa Rican wet forest. Watch for unusual-looking species, such as the wrinkly Mexican tree frog and the translucent glass frog. Bird-watchers should also bring a pair of binoculars to catch sight of a number of avian species in the gardens. Reserve at least a day ahead as the gardens may be fully booked due to popularity.

  • A biologist has on the land of his father, over 9 years growing a jungle, planted many flowers to and beautiful ways to. The plants were selected according to the needs of frogs, sloths and birds. For $25 he or his father take visitors about 1.5 2.5 hours from one animal to the next. He whistles hummingbirds reach, let it rain to lure out frogs, the frogs photogenic opts for a sheet and gives tips to the camera setting in difficult light conditions. Welfare of animals always with you in mind! We have seen here all the animals and can shoot alone we have hoped for. This all in a very pleasant atmosphere, in perfect English, and with great background knowledge. Then there's chatting a very good coffee and the chance something about country and people. Thank you for the wonderful time!

  • This place gave an exceptional experience! Highly recommend it. Best to go before 3pm due to having good daylight and time to spend there. Jose is the owner. He makes a really great guide and will show you all the frogs and give some history. Bring a good zoom lens.
  • Amazing place! You get to see many kinds of frogs in their natural habitat which is a very unique experience. The farm and plants around are also very beautiful. We had a great guide who explained everything with great passion and patience, and we even got to see some toucans. Highly recommended!
  • Wonderful place. The young man who showed us around was so keen and knowledgeable. Great chance to see frogs up close and also good for birds and sloths. Personal attention and lovely fresh juice at the end. We loved it.
  • Super cool to meet Jose and his family. Worth great care they constructed a heaven of frogs. We got there by car on our way to the Caribbean Sea. We saw for four different colorful frogs and multiple birds. Great. Make sure you put repellent on and enjoy!
  • Excellent. Modest entrance but don't let that put you off. This is a great experience and really knowledgeable friendly owners. Even have wild Sloth and babies.
