neo fauna jaco costa ricaConservation is the cornerstone of Costa Rica, and few destinations better embrace this than Neo Fauna.

Tucked a mere kilometer away from Jaco’s downtown is a small, but spectacular, preserve. Neo Fauna delights travelers with its vast collection of butterflies, amphibians and exotic plants. Established in 1990 by noted biologist Luis Angel Fonseca, this attraction provides a glimpse into the country’s unique ecosystems.

The main structure, which sprawls over 10,000 square feet, houses rare butterflies, with glass displays showcasing Blue Morphos, Tiger Butterflies and more. Guests then walk into a humid secondary structure, where reptiles and amphibians are carefully bred to support repopulation efforts. Seasoned guides are positioned throughout the preserve to offer insight into these creatures, as well as to explain the importance of conservation.

Neo Fauna is a perfect option for eco-tourists and families alike. No reservations are needed but, due to the popularity of this option, travelers should book private tours at least two weeks in advance.
