Full description
After beginning your tour at 5:45PM, you will be able to live the experience of the only natural frog sanctuary in La Fortuna by night. This is your opportunity to view colorful frogs and other wild animals of the rainforest when they are more active and more easily observed. At least 28-species of frogs have decided to make the Arenal Oasis ponds their home. The native plants of Arenal are carefully maintained, in order to create the perfect habitat for these amphibious creatures. This unique private wildlife reserve sits inside a rainforest refuge that connects the tropical areas of the Arenal Volcano and the Burio River. Your local guide will prepare you with a flashlight to assist you in finding these unique creatures, and at the conclusion of your tour you will be returned back to your La Fortuna accommodation.

The walking trail isn't long, but wow, there is so much wildlife! We saw a beautiful glass frog, a poison dart frog, and too many others to list. Additionally, we saw some snakes and insects. Our guide was amazing at finding them; we wouldn't have seen any on our own. My kids loved this tour.

Good

The guide Royvin was excellent. The number of frogs (and a pit viper) was sufficient, but not exactly many. You could change that a visitor receives a weaker flashlight than the guide. I have never read before that you should not use flashlights for the camera (because of the heat). But in itself a nice tour. That I was brought to the hotel within 10 minutes of the I-Phone that was left in the tour bus is first class. I couldn't even tip the driver, but I made up for it the next day ... really nice, including the efforts of the staff at the Volcano Lodge reception.

Guide took us to very crowded area with lots of other groups. He handled some of thr frogs and insects. He didn't seem concerned if we were together or keeping up with him in thick undergrowth, climbing over logs etc.
