Small gem well worth the stop for an hour. We saw two sloth, anteater, fish, frog house. Enthusiastic employees happy to talk about the animals.
$5 for non residents. Saw a two sloths, raccoon, frogs, starfish, iguanas and fish. Run by the Smithosian and they had at least two guides who spoke english. They said they had 15 sloths, we saw two sleeping pretty high up in the trees. Would...More
If you've never seen any of the animals at Punta Culebra, then go. However if you've traveled the carribean, you've seen most of them (sea turtles, frogs, iguanas, nurse sharks), and won't be impressed. The reserve is quite small, so it can all be seen...More
This is a bit out of the way on the Causeway but worth a taxi ride. There is a small area of forest / bush in which you can usually find sloths and iguanas. There are some birds but not many when we were there...More
Not too great. They have sea turtles living in a very small tank. They have a beach which your not allowed to walk on. Good bathrooms though, I have to give them that.

We were on a tour and apparently running late because once we reached the institute we had no time to actually see the frogs. The guides were all young and we really couldn't hear them well. They were very proud of the work done there...More

We really enjoyed our time spend at this sympathic place. It might not show spectacular but what the Smithsonian is able to achieve on its rather limited premisis is quite impressive. We enjoyed the guided presentation on frogs and amphibians, the aquaria with coral reef...More
