#4 of 6 in Parks in Jaco
Get up close and personal with some of Costa Rica's most exotic mammals, reptiles, and insects with a visit to Neo Fauna. This wildlife conservation area is tucked away in the wilderness and dedicated to the preservation and reproduction of endangered species. The farm pays particular attention to butterflies, poisonous dart frogs, and snakes. The center also works as a safe refuge for wounded and sick wild animals to heal and be safely released into the wild. Seek out a tour guide to get an in-depth explanation of all the on-site creatures.

  • A pretty little park! the animals are caged very different from the rest of the Park to the Costa Rica a horribly high price near 100 euro to three per child fare or with disabilities and many more small than any other park here and the highest of our vacation better your going to the carrara Park! !

  • This place is a small zoo where they breed endangered animals to release into the wild. They have frogs, snakes, turtles, parrots, macaws, and butterflies. The guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the animals and the breeding programs. He will show you every animal individually and answer every question with great enthusiasm and patience. The only reason that I didn't give this more stars is that the admission of US$25 per person (for a 75-minute tour) seems high compared to comparable tours in Costa Rica.
  • All animals in cages, butterfly cage is nice but most experience is "sad", snakes are very aggressive but in cages, could be scary for younger kids..
  • Very nice place with several animals. We were lucky to have an English speaking guide. The more or less similar welcoming at first sight, but all is good enough. Bring money liquid (33 000 colones) since there is no system for cards.
