We visited the EcoZoo after ziplining at SkyAdventures Arenal for the morning - an afternoon thunderstorm made for the perfect visit to the ecozoo; we first ate a delicious late lunch in the terrace restaurant - really lovely - saw wild toucans fly above us, and lots of humming birds! Then we had a guided tour by Stephen ( not sure if I spelled that right) , who is doing an internship there - so he doesn't even get paid! - and he was a great tour guide - so knowledgeable about all the animals of Costa Rica - He even knew a lot about the insects and frogs! And best of all we got to hold the famous red eyed tree frog plus a few other snakes and got to see the weekly feeding of the Boa and the poisonous Bush viper. It is much bigger than it looks from outside -- even though the tour was supposed to take an hour or so, we were so into it that I believe we were there almost 3 hours! I was looking forward to visiting but can honestly say it was even better than expected. A great way to see many of the animals up close that you probably won't easily see in nature ( although we did see one eyelash viper at the eco walk at Sky adventures right along the trail).
