Neo Fauna Tour Costa Rica is a wildlife conservation project located in the town of Herradura, just a couple of mile away from Jaco Beach. Neo Fauna is dedicated to the exhibition and reproduction of species in danger of extinction. Especially butterflies and colorful poison dart frogs. Our goal is to reproduce them and release them back into their natural habitat and help repopulate the forest. We also rescue injured or sick wild animals; we cure them and then reintroduce them back into their natural habitats. We have been working for the conservation of the fauna of the Costa Rica Neo Tropics for more than 20 years!. Our unique project; the butterfly and frog farms are more than 6600 square feet, which makes them the largest butterfly farm in Costa Rica. In our butterfly farm you can see over 50 different species of multi-colored iridescent butterflies and some of them have camouflage that make them almost invisible such as the Owl butterfly, Blue Morpho butterfly, Tiger and Zebra butterflies among many others hovering over your heads. You will see butterflies and also will be able to see them in their full cycle of life. Larva stages and cocoons from most of our species.
Some of the frog species that we have include the most colorful and most beautiful frogs in the world. We also have about 10 species of venomous and non-venomous snakes of Costa Rica that you can see in a very secure way. It is a guided tour, unlike other places of this kind. You will have the opportunity to learn about the species you are looking at instead of having to read signs that only have the common name and the Latin name of the species that you are looking at. If you love the Neo Tropics living jewels and nature, with your visit you will help us to continue rescuing and repopulating these forest creatures, and at the same time you will learn about our tropical species.
