About Us


Parque Reptilandia is comprised of 71 terrarium-style enclosures and ponds on a little over an acre of land. A wide, flat path through the Park makes it wheelchair accessible and a comfortable walk for young and old alike. The central viewing area is undercover and features glass-fronted terrariums arranged with rock, perches and local flora that provide a natural environment for the animals and a rich viewing experience for our guests. And remember..FRIDAY is feeding day!


Animal Planet’s Snakemaster series, starring Austin Stevens, began airing in 2005 on Discovery Channel. The Costa Rica episode, filmed by UK based Tigress Productions, features a variety of snakes courtesy of Parque Reptilandia, including “Big Bertha” our giant female Fer-de-lance (Bothrops asper). Parque Reptilandia staff also worked behind the scenes for the Costa Rica filmed sequences of the new Jeff Corwin Experience. Also filmed by Tigress Productions in 2005.

Quetzal and the staff were once again invited to work with Tigress Productions on a quality snakeeducational program in January of 2006. Look for “Caught in the Moment” airing July 2006 on Discovery Channel, Animal Planet. The new series profiles Tristan Bayer and Vanessa Garnick, two up-and-coming filmmakers, as they travel the globe to capture unique glimpses of animal life. You'll see how they capture rare moments in the wild, from the courtship dances of Japanese cranes to the spectacle of 150,000 sea turtles nesting on a Costa Rican beach. Quetzal worked as a field guide with Director, Duncan Chad and Cameraman, Simon Niblett for the natural history filming of the giant Olive Ridley sea turtles nesting in Ostional, Costa Rica. It was awesome!
