Our unforgettably unique Frog Habitat showcases the numerous amphibian species that live in the Caribbean rainforest. The exhibit is divided into three sections, which are open depending on season:
Day-time frogs: See our open-roof (or open-air, etc.) collection of native frogs that are most active during daytime, including the red poison dart frog. These are the frogs that are most often seen moving freely around Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure’s walking trails. And watch your step! – they also move freely within this unique Diurnal Exhibit!
Nocturnal frogs: Most frogs are nocturnal which makes observing them in their natural habitat difficult. We artificially turn day into night in our nocturnal frog exhibit to allow you to watch these fascinating animals going about their normal lives, rather than hiding or sleeping as they do during daylight hours.
Our Butterfly Garden is inhabited by hundreds of the world’s most colorful butterflies. A walk through our garden allows adults and children to interact with these wonderful and magical creatures in an intimate environment, perfect for a photo opportunity or, see if you can have a butterfly land on you– a sign of good luck.
Your walk through our garden includes a visit to our research lab, where our staff studies the behavior and lifestyle of Veragua´s colorful flying residents. Also, take a leisurely walk through cases of butteflies, perfectly preserved and correctly pinned by our scientists.
In our Reptile Habitat, you will see iguanas, lizards and snakes living in areas created to mimic their natural habitats.
Over 130 different snake species call Costa Rica home, including some of the world’s deadliest, such as the Golden Eyelash Viper and the Fer de Lance pit viper (known locally as the “Terciopelo”).
