Frogs Heaven, Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui

4.6
#2 of 12 in Parks in Province of Heredia
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.

  • 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!
  • Eco-Tourism at its most intimate. Leo had incredible English, knowledge and a real passion for the environment. We saw frogs, but also toucans, a sloth and a plethora of birds. The owners made us very welcome and genuinely enjoyed having us at their refuge. It's a small family run business that's in it for the animals.
  • Leo our guide was awesome. The place is just incredible. You'll see poison dart frogs I promise. Cool birds too. If you take the bus from puerto viejo keep a sharp eye out on the right side of the road for the sign that says frogs heaven about 15 to 30 minutes from departure. Apply bug spray before you get there and wash it off your hands. There's lots of mosquitos but deet in the air or soil can kill the frogs so apply ahead of time. All in all great experience.
  • Super cool place with friendly, knowledgeable staff
  • Jose has done a fine job of recreating habitat for frogs and other creatures. Fun and informative off-the-beaten path activity.
