See Butterflies, Snakes & Frogs On This Exotic Tour

See exotic wildlife in this tour, which takes you to a beautiful place surrounded by forest just 150 meters from the Hotel Hacienda Guachipelin. The Butterfly Garden presents three of the largest families of butterflies in Costa Rica. The Serpentarium and Frog Exhibit present 23 species of snakes, all alive, including 11 poisonous; six species of live frogs; and two species of basilisks — in habitats built of wood and glass. Your guide explains details about each animal. You can even take a picture with a boa!

From there, walk along a path to the Mirador de la Hacienda, from where you can see the Rincon de la Vieja and Santa María volcanoes and the Pacific Ocean coast.
