Costa Rica Spotlight: Unusual Frog Exhibit at the La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica

Costa Rica Spotlight:  Yes, the La Paz Waterfall Gardens is open for visitors!   A few days ago I was lucky to be able to spend a few hours. One of the exhibits which impressed me most was the frog exhibit.  The colorful tropical frogs climbing  freely in a natural setting amid tropical plants and small rocky water falls.   My knowledgeable guide , Carlos explained all about each frog. The poison dart frog, the tiny red one with black feet is prevalent in the tropical lowland of Costa Rica’s rain forest.  So watch where you step when you are out there hiking.   This poisonous frog comes in many different colors and sizes.  One of the most beautiful is the orange and black spotted poison  dart frog.

Under  a hugh banana tree leaf I spotted a large green transparent frog with its baby on its back.  In all my travels into the Costa Rica jungle I had never seen anything like this one.  You could actually see the tiny veins and organs inside the frog.

Of course the red eyed tree frog (the poster frog of Costa Rica) is more beautiful than any photo. I was so excited to actually see one close up.

I highly recommend this exhibit for adults as well as children, a fun as well as educational experience. Please go to the web for more information about La Paz Waterfall Gardens   www.waterfallgardens.com
