Monteverde Frog Pond, Santa Elena

3.4
#10 of 19 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.

  • We spent an enjoyable hour taking an interesting and educational guided tour with Alejandro in the afternoon and then came back in the evening to revisit it on our own. A free return entry is included...  more »
  • We visited the place to take advantage of a space of free time in the morning, we pay a tour that included butterfly farm, frog pond and insects. Our guide, Santiago, gave it the special touch to travel, sharing some of their knowledge with us. The entrance was valid to return at night and watch the frogs with nocturnal behavior that could not be seen during the morning. They have also a quite large insect exhibit and you can be in contact with many butterflies. It seems a very neat place.

Where to stay in Monteverde

Monteverde makes the most of its scenic natural surroundings, with an extensive choice of eco-accommodations offering an immersive natural experience. Most guests choose to stay outside of the town center to enjoy the rainforest surroundings in an eco-lodge or a family-owned ranch. Southeast, along the road to Monteverde Reserve, and north, near Don Juan Towns, you'll find some of the most popular areas to stay. If you do stay within the town center, you'll still enjoy easy access to the area's gardens and animal reserves.
