Manuel Antonio Herping Tour (Reptile & Amphibian)
Why take this tour?
Costa Rica is home to around 147 species of snakes and nearly as many species of frogs and toads, Costa Rica is an incredible and popular destination for herping enthusiasts. More than a quarter of the country's land has been designated protected national parks and nature reserves helping to keep wild populations of animals healthier and more diverse than anywhere else in Central America. Designed for very exclusive small groups in mind (6 people max), we will spend full time searching strictly for all herpetological creatures, our experience is the perfect activity for nature and wildlife photographers, herpetology or tropical biology students and professors, or any eco-friendly traveler. We will educate you on what makes these nocturnal animals so unique. We encourage any and all questions you have throughout the tour. Our job is for you to have a fun, educational tour of one of the most distinct habitats in the world.
