Domincal’s Reptile Park, known locally as Parque Reptilandia, is one of the only places you will get to see most of these exotic animals. You may hear the local Ticos (Costa Ricans) refer to it as Parque Reptilandia and think that you will need to beef up on your translation abilities, but don’t worry about that, because all of the guides are bilingual and can accommodate your group’s needs easily.
Situated on just over an acre of land, the park contains over 70 terrarium tanks to show off iguanas, venomous and non venomous snakes, and poisonous frogs. All animals are contained in a safe environment that is easily accessible by wheelchairs for viewers to marvel at and enjoy. Kids and families are welcome!
The guides here handle some of the most venomous and dangerous reptiles and amphibians and are the best at what they do. They have even assisted with the making of many films produced at the park and the surrounding areas, including The Jeff Corwin Experience.
This tour is especially useful for education of the different species of snakes in our jungle as well as how to correctly respond if one were to be stumbled upon in the wild.
In most communities 4wheel drive is needed to access the small mountainous towns, homes, attractions, and the alluring sounds of cascading waterfalls and singing toucans.
But transportation is easy getting to Parque Reptilandia, either driving (2 wheel drive), taking a cab from the nearby cities of Quepos, Dominical, or San Isidro, and even the local bus makes a stop at the entrance.
