Butterfly Garden, Serpentarium & Frog Exhibit

The dry tropical forest covering the western side of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa Rica creates an interesting ecosystem for many different animals and plants than you would see in other parts of the country. 

You can see exotic native wildlife on a nature tour to Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin’s Butterfly Garden, Serpentarium & Frog Exhibit.

Located in a beautiful setting surrounded by forest, yet only 150 meters (about 165 yards) from the hotel, the Butterfly Garden presents three of the major families of butterflies in Costa Rica. The Serpentarium and Frog Exhibit shows off 23 kinds of live snakes, including 11 that are poisonous; six species of live frogs and two types of basilisk lizards – in glass and wood habitat cases. Your tour guide will explain details about each animal. You’ll even have the opportunity to take a picture with a live boa!

On our tour you will walk a delightful trail to the ranch’s Look-out Point, where you can see the Rincón de la Vieja and Santa Maria volcanoes along with the Pacific Coastline.

When you go on our fascinating Archaeology Tour at Hacienda Guachipelin, a visit to our Butterfly Garden, Serpentarium & Frog Exhibit is included.
