    Wonderful Place full of Beautiful Sights
    This was our first tour. We were the only ones on the tour with our guide. Before we even got the Butterfly garden our guide spotted a red poison dart frog, a wood thrush, a Mot Mot AND a Mama Sloth with a baby!!! We got some amazing pics with our guide's scope. I could see everything with my binoculars, but the scope of the guide was amazing. Then we got to the Butterfly Garden which was lovely. Got great pics. Our guide was super knowledgeable about all the species we were seeing and we definitely got a good education while on the tour. I felt so lucky we got to see so much on our first tour!

    Enjoy the Night Creatures
    This was our first tour on arrival to la Fortuna. I loved following our very knowledgeable guide, searching with flashlights for wildlife. We saw many tiny frogs, spiders, bats, caymans and a two-toed sloth with her three month old baby! We passed through the butterfly enclosure but all the occupants were sleeping since this was a nite tour. We saw a small white headed snake and several large millipedes. Enjoyed this tour very much!

    Way overpriced for experience
    Night tour, very blahhh, long, boring and way overpriced. Very little to see, few frogs, a sleeping bird, and a couple small caymans. Maybe daytime would be better

    Peaceful haven for wildlife
    This is a lovely haven of nature and wildlife where you can spend a few hours. I did an excellent guided tour and was shown many new birds, lizards and even a caiman! It was very quiet and peaceful with hardly anyone around and a wonderful, very active bird feeder with a huge variety of birds. A great way half-day destination while in Arenal.

    Great Tour for Family
    I had read reviews & selected Ecocentro Danaus because it offered so much - and it delivered! Not only did was our guide thoughtful & informative, but the propery provided great views of flora & fauna - as well as a brief presentation by an indigenous person from Costa Rica. We particularly enjoyed that as well as the butterfly area. Amazing photos will help us remember this wonderful place.

    Fun experience!
    We toured with Melvin and had a wonderful time looking at all of Costa Rica's key types of wildlife. He was very accommodating of our young kids (2 and 4) and helped them view many animals through a phone camera looking into his binoculars. The 1.5 hour daytime tour was completely worth both the time and money.

    Nighttime tour!
    We did a nighttime tour with Melvin, who was incredibly patient and knowledgeable. We saw a number of animals on our CR wish list including red eye frogs, caymans, sloths and butterflies. We were especially impressed with the butterfly exhibiti where we saw caterpillars, pupae and then the evolution to butterflies. We loved the nighttime tour and the ability to see animals that we wouldn’t normally see during the day. Melvin showed us lots of insects and other animals we would never have noticed on our own. We were traveling with a guest in a scooter and the gravel path was a challenge, so be warned if you have any mobility issues. But, we loved the fact that this center was a nature center geared towards the development of animals in their natural habitat and that there are no barriers keeping any of them on the property. Would highly recommend!

    Frogs!!!
    This was an excellent guided tour. The wildlife preserve was small, but packed with lots of wildlife - frogs, birds, insects, butterflies, sloths etc. Melbin was a great guide, and spotted a lot of wildlife.

    EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE!
    This was an EXCELLENT experience! We saw a sloth, spiders, lizards, butterflies, lots of different species of frogs & more! Melvin was our tour guide for the evening, he was very knowledgeable about the history and all the wildlife! He was very friendly and we enjoyed our tour with him! Melvin also took amazing photos of the animals for us on our phones! Our family was the only group there so we basically got a private tour. I highly recommend! The health and safety of the animals is always my #1 concern before doing any tours. The animals are in the wild, they come and goes as they please, they are safe & protected here!

Actually, my partner and I rented a room in Ecocentre Danaus. It is possible to stay in one of their rooms, which is an amazing chance to spend a wonderful time among pure nature. It's definitely better than staying in a hotel. We were surrounded by marvelous tropical trees. We fell asleep to the birds singing and the mornings began with a clear volcano view. We didn't take a tour with a guide, but we walked through the centre on our own and we were surprised to see so many plants, animals and butterflies.
Also, the nicest people work there. They're extremely pleasant. They will tell you fascinating stories about the eco-center and its inhabitants. I would definitely come back to learn about nature and to meet people❤️

Filled with beauty on every turn. Birds, butterflies, reptiles, sloth. It is wonderful to meander along the trails and see what you can spot along the way. Beautifully maintained. Wish we would have time to come back for a night tour. We did those in a couple of other locations in Costa RIca, and I have really come to appreciate those. Doing a night tour at this location must be spectacular.

We saw endless wildlife in this reserve - from birds (both at the feeding station and around the gardens) to sloths, to butterflies in the butterfly house. Add in also all the beautiful plants and it made this tour worth every cent of the entry price. Highly recommended.
