Fodor's Review

One of a growing number of Costa Rica's serpentaria, the Snake Garden shows off some 50 species of reptiles, including all the poisonous snakes (and most of the nonpoisonous ones) found in Costa Rica, as well as pythons, anacondas, and rattlesnakes from elsewhere in North and South America. You can handle a few specimens upon request and under supervision.
