  • A place in which large and kids will have fun... nice climate and landscapes! You know all about turtles and other marine animals! Contact with starfish.

  • Not a "MUST SEE" place. Good place to learn history and nature about Panama. Outside architecture is unique  more »
  • Beautiful ride, got to watch and learn about various species of small frogs, through a very interesting conservation work. We also saw huge turtles; sloths, lizards and raccoons in freedom; and many marine specimens. All this very carefully, the environment is very cute and relaxing. And it does not take too long. Unfortunately it is not a place that promoted much, but it is recommended!

  • Small place, but full of amazing examples of the biodiversity in Panama! Won't dissapoint.
  • Great place to breathe in nature for a few hours! Pet a starfish, watch sloths, watch rainforest frogs, or just take in the scenery...
  • A lovely spot. Small, dont expect too much. The views are fantastic, the shade is refreshing on a hot day, and it's a great activity to do with young kids.
  • Saw lots of sloths, frogs, and sea turtles! Really an enjoyable place to visit.
  • I learned a lot about frogs in there, and turtles. They have sea stars and we can touch them.
