Monteverde Frog Pond Costa Rica - Ranario

The Monteverde Frog Pond is committed to educating its visitors on both the beauty and bounty of frogs, as well as the threats they currently face around the world.


Visitors can admire more than 25 species of native frogs, toads and other amphibians living in large, naturally-simulated terrariums. A bilingual guide accompanies visitors during each tour and teaches them about the frogs’ history, habitat, and unique characteristics. Some of the frogs and toads on hand include the colorful poison arrow frog, crowned frog, marine toad, cane toad, leopard frog, hourglass frog, and the famous red-eyed tree frog.

Furthermore, there is an exhibition on the natural history of amphibians as well as a gift shop that sells many frog-related souvenirs.

Visits after dark are especially popular, as the frogs are generally more active and vocal during the nighttime.

Frogs and toads are currently undergoing a massive global decline. Part of the proceeds from the ticket sales goes to conservation and research efforts.

Entrance fee for adults is $12 and $10 for students. The Frog Pond is open from 9:00 AM to 8:30 PM.
