“Knowledgeable keepers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

This was an interesting tour of a very large range of snakes (many native to Costa Rica, but many rescued pets that are NOT native to Costa Rica). The guide was very knowledgeable, even if young and informally educated, and happy to spend a long time with us - 90 minutes looking at perhaps 30 species of snake and a few other critters. If you are interested in the details about habitat, food choices, poison types, ... then this is well worth the stop - but if you are looking for a typical zoo (lots and lots of variety) or hands on experience (like exists at some rescue centers) then this should probably not be high on your priority list.

Very difficult to Find in Grecia even though we seen the large poster - cost $11 very nice lady operating entrance but not well maintained as a regular zoo - they have ocelets too! and many snakes from around the world

“Snakes in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

We got a great tour of this little place, with a guy (Arnold) whose English was great. We learned a lot. A little pricey - $22 for two of us.

“Very personalized tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

We had a very personalized tour. We were given a tour of the breeding areas, main show area, and also where they keep the newly born snakes. Their main viewing area has approximately 50 different snakes, crocs, etc. We were also able to see them feed their big cats a live meal (not for the faint at heart). We really enjoyed ourselves and the staff members were very knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk with. Would recommend to anyone that love reptiles.

“Snakes?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2011

Just not worth the money. Not well maintained and not too many snakes to see.
