  • The place is a pretty little refuge in Jaco down a cute little street past a local school. The surroundings are lush and in March the shade was a blessing and there was a breeze! When we arrived...  more »
  • NeoFauna is an amazing place. I spent a week there volunteering over my spring break and became very close to the owner and his brother who taught me so much and gave me many different opportunities.....  more »

  • Kind of a rip off. People nice but not a lot to C for $25 per person. Don't really know if they release anything
  • Well worth the trip! Just a few minutes from town and a really affordable rate. Jose was an excellent guide through the educational tour and our 2 & 4 year old could definitely appreciate it, even while the adults did a lot of talking. Lots to see and learn, check it out!!
