Monteverde Frog Pond, Santa Elena

3.3
#11 of 20 in Parks in Monteverde
Search for over twenty species of frog and amphibian at Monteverde Frog Pond, where a collection of terrariums house these colorful creatures. Great marine toads, eye catching poison arrow frogs and the famous red eyed tree frog hide amongst the undergrowth, with knowledgeable guides on hand to help you find them. As most frogs are nocturnal, it is best to visit in the evening to take a tour and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the frogs. A percentage of your admission fee goes toward conservation projects for the frog and toad. Monteverde Frog Pond is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Monteverde Edition.

  • In the land of the cloud forest where it rains a lot, could not miss the vastly different species of frogs. What is surprising is not only the biodiversity of these small animals found in these lands but also multifaceted coloration that characterizes it and ranging from various shades of green to orange and red. It is, therefore, a fascinating experience to follow the Guide while in closed glass containers of ranario, with a torch the goes to see among the shrubs that mimic their natural environment. Each new container is a surprising new discovery. They are animals that elicit tenderness in their ungainly gait and with those big eyes that appear veiled by sadness. Fascinate even who on the species described by the guide who accompanies you in this unusual and unusual path. Even this instructive journey through the different species of frogs that inhabit the forests of Costa Rica is a further evidence of the close relationship that exists between the nature and the people in this country.

  • I didn't have many expectations about the visit to the frog but if you win, so I was encouraged and the truth is that I enjoyed a private tour, there was no one more... with an excellent guide, Dennis, I was surprised that I got to like, and I recommend it, highly recommended! Great evening, day not so much, the entry includes day without Guide and night Guide, the activity of the frogs is night... Not only frogs, there are more things to do, but it is a frog, you are going to see frogs, don't expect a Zoo! There is Wi-Fi... Recommended!

  • This is our second time here with our first visit some eleven years earlier - so this place has been around a while. Not much as changed in the Frog section but the Butterfly Garden wasn't there when ...  more »
