  • The place is a pretty little refuge in Jaco down a cute little street past a local school. The surroundings are lush and in March the shade was a blessing and there was a breeze! When we arrived...  more »
  • NeoFauna is an amazing place. I spent a week there volunteering over my spring break and became very close to the owner and his brother who taught me so much and gave me many different opportunities.....  more »
  • So we went here hoping to enjoy the experience of saving animals and insects in Jaco. We were hesitant because the price is $25USD and we are Canadian so even more, but we decided to go for it...  more »

  • Kind of a rip off. People nice but not a lot to C for $25 per person. Don't really know if they release anything
  • Well worth the trip! Just a few minutes from town and a really affordable rate. Jose was an excellent guide through the educational tour and our 2 & 4 year old could definitely appreciate it, even while the adults did a lot of talking. Lots to see and learn, check it out!!
  • Really cool place - we got to feed the macaws, hold a boa and got to hold a snapping turtle. Definitely a highlight of the vacation.
  • This was such a great tour! Highly recommend.
  • What an amazing experience at Neo Fauna! As nature lovers we enjoyed an in-depth tour of animals and an introduction to the forest plants of Costa Rica. Our guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable about all the insects and animals and their place in Costa Rica’s ecosystem. The close-up interactions with specific butterfly and frog species is something we won’t forget. Go to Neo Fauna and learn something new!
