Short Tour


Experience a practical educational experience about nature, with diversified exhibits of how butterflies, frogs, insects, and plants exist in this natural environment. Six large atrium habitats provide representation of the plants, trees, butterflies, and frogs that live within the four micro-climates surrounding Lake Arenal. You will also see our laboratories, reproduction greenhouses, the exotic frog habit, host plant gardens and orchid exhibition.

For more adventure, take the Rainforest River Walk along Quebrada Mariposa, the creek running through the primary forest on the property, where it’s often possible to spot animals such as sloth’s, tayra’s and monkeys; or toucans and parrots. Or, just take time to reflect on the hummingbirds around the Volcano View Gazebo, that overlook the botanical gardens, with views to the Arenal lake and volcano beyond.
