  • The Park is designed for the good be animals and that's good, however, we see that very little. Crocodile, sloth, and monkey, sparingly, but in fact the boat ride does not bring much in this regard.

  • Unique water world teeming with animals. Great start to our Costa Rica holiday. Turtles didn't come out for us but still had a great dusk walk down the pretty wild beach.  more »
