Ponderosa Adventure Park, Liberia

4.2
#2 of 17 in Theme Parks in Costa Rica
Experience close encounters with tropical and exotic animals at Ponderosa Adventure Park. Unlike some other zoos in Latin America, the facilities here prioritize the health and happiness of the animals, who live in open, free-roaming conditions. Resident critters include emus, Iberian mountain goats, gnus, giraffes, ostriches, and zebras. Younger visitors will be delighted with the opportunity to pet some of these creatures. Opt for a guided tour of the park and see the onsite waterfall. Unless you know the city of Liberia very well, take a taxi to the attraction, as the roads to the zoo are difficult to navigate for those new to the area.

  • Excellent option to go on tour with children and family in general. Different types of animals, delicious and typical options for lunch and try the cuisine offered by costa Rica. Sale of souvenirs, and among other things such as visits to waterfalls in the area. It is advisable to acquire and guided tour that includes many benefits in the price.

  • Simply perfect, excellent access, personal attention, facilities such as restaurant sector and areas of bathrooms I think that they should be given maintenance. But that does not dull the good time spent with the children. Transportation of the trucks best safari, personally I think that it is better than the grasshoppers. Animals are well cared noticed.

  • The title says it all. You get to feed and touch giraffes. You also get to see and feed other animals like zebras, oryx, guns, deer and some others. It's a great family experience cause I don't think ...  more »

  • Had a wonderful day at this Adventure Park. Was very happy to feed all the animals especially the giraffes and the zip lining was very fun too. Only confusion we had was we seen a billboard that showed an all-inclusive price but when we went to the park everything was all a-la-cart. Might be something to look into before you go there but it's certainly worth going to!
  • The buildings and transportation vehicles definitely need maintenance. Very limited options in the buffet. Park Staff looked sad and tired. On the other hand the short safari tour was really cool!
  • Weather was great and loved spending time with the animals, the giraffes were a lot of fun. Great for families
  • This was an amazing adventure. Where else can you do so many fun activities for such a inexpensive price. This was a major highlight in our Costa Rica vacation. Definitely buy plenty of carrots before going on the safari. Amazing place.
  • Overpricey... You will be charged like you're visiting an amusement park in US but service, infrastructure and food quality are way distant from it. I don't recommend it. I wont visit it again!
