Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. A great way to see local fauna and learn a bit about them. Only took a little over an hour for $25. A must do if you are in Jaco and need a short break.

Took my teenage daughter here and we loved it. There was so much to see and the guy who took us around was very knowledgable. Highly recommend it for anyone interested in animals. My favourite was holding a baby parrot

We stumbled upon Neo Fauna walking the river from Hotel Pumilio. What an amazing find - frogs, butterflies, birds, snakes, turtles... this place had it all, and for only $20 per person. Highly recommended.

I'm not sure what time they open, we went in early afternoon. We did not book ahead, we just showed up, and they got us in right away.
