“Gives you a healthy respect for the snakes of Costa Rica!”
The Herpetarium was an excellent way to see and learn about a number of the snakes that you should be watching out for when you are navigating Costa Rica, as well as lizards, tarantulas, and turtles. We spent about an hour and a half there, and while it was a self-guided tour, any questions we had were answered by the very knowledgeable staff member (he also helped point out several of the snakes that we could not spot!).Read Full Review
Herpetarium Adventures – Face Wildlife
Herpetarium’s Key Components:
Terrariums are acclimated to the species that inhabit them giving them an appropriate and comfortable environment.
Terrariums are built thinking in the species but also in our visitors safety, to learn and enjoy the species from up close.
Visits after dark are unique, as the species are generally more active and vocal during the nighttime.
A guide will be there to describe each species, its characteristics, and survival instincts.
Discover more than 30 species that are found in different areas of Costa Rica.
Furthermore, there is an exhibition of bones, eggs, skins and other elements of various species.
- Visit during daytime and at night to spot the difference between animal behaviors.
- Keeping a silent profile will keep species relaxed and will probably expose themselves.
- No flash photography is permitted, since it may alter some species behavior.
