Parque Reptilandia

TIME : 2016/2/18 15:42:54

Though Parque Reptilandia is a reptile-lover's dream come true on any day, keep in mind that Friday is feeding day. If you’re traveling with kids who love slick and slimy reptiles and amphibians, or you yourself just can’t get enough of these prehistoric creatures, don’t miss the chance to get face to face with Costa Rica’s most famous reptiles. The animal park is home to everything from alligators and crocodiles to turtles and poison-dart frogs.

Our favorite is the viper section, home to such infamous critters as the deadly fer-de-lance. The park is located in the town of Platanillo, which is 7km up the road to San Isidro de El General. Find the junction just north of the turnoff to Dominical.
