Explore Arenal's Night Wildlife & a Frog Sanctuary.



Rate per person from $69

‘Private Reserve Night Hike’ is perfect for:

Families, couples, and groups who want to see more of Costa Rica’s nature from a different perspective.

Visit a family-owned private property that works as a reserve for the local flora and fauna in a tour that shows you the natural wonders of Costa Rica’s nightlife.

A Family-Owned Sanctuary

Take a half-hour drive to the town of La Tigra and to the Mendez family property. Here the land is dedicated to the regeneration of the local forests so both plants and animals can thrive.

Walk down the trail and observe the wildlife that awakes at dusk. The forest along the trail is regenerating and it has water mirrors that allow you to spot animals better.

There is opportunity to see creatures like birds, mammals, colorful insects, bats, and amphibians.

A Refuge for Costa Rica’s Wildlife

There is a frog sanctuary on the property where various frog species live and add numbers to the forest.

Enjoy their songs as you try and find some of the most iconic Costa Rican frogs like the hammer frog (the smallest species of frog in the country), bullfrog (the biggest), the red-eyed frog, and the little glass frog (which is translucent!).

Finish the tour with a traditional Costa Rican dinner prepared in a wooden stove. Enjoy the sounds of nature all around you, and then head back to your hotel for a good night’s sleep.
