Costa Rica Travel News – The Ranario in Monteverde is more than a frog exhibit; it’s more like a theme park. That’s because there are exhibits of frogs and snakes, insects, and butterflies, along with a canopy tour, jungle night tour and a hotel. It’s a 6-in-one adventure.
The indoor frog exhibit, after which the place is named, is interesting and informative. The guides really know about the creatures you will see. They can help you spot them and tell you interesting facts about them, including about their micro-habitats, life cycles, diet and behaviors. You will want to come back to the Ranario, or Frog Pond, for sure!
The butterfly exhibit is home to 30 species, all of which are native to Monteverde and the surrounding areas. The insects include live and preserved ones. Some are from Monteverde, while others are from around the world.
After exploring these exhibits, an adventure tour is in order- canopy ziplining. There are a total of 8 zip lines, 2 rappels, and a Tarzan Swing. This is the only canopy in the country that is open at night, offering you a different experience. On the night tour, you will get a beverage and a snack. If you come with a group of 7 or more, a BBQ is included!
After a day and night packed with fun, you will enjoy a good nights’ sleep at Hostel Casa Celeste, where you will feel right at home. With everything in one place, you will enjoy a natural and unique experience. Taking advantage of this 6-in-1 option is a must for any trip to Monteverde to be complete.
