Costa Rica Tours of the Monteverde Living Museums Costa Rica tours incorporate many fascinating areas of the country. River excursions and jungle journeys are fun ways to see wildlife. But sometimes the wildlife doesn’t cooperate when they are—well—in the wild. A better way to be assured of seeing the animals, birds, and marine life that you want to see is to visit one of the country’s many living museums. Monteverde is home to so many living museums that it could take you weeks to visit all of them. For example, the Ranario—or Monteverde Frog Pond—is the best place to see some of the 135 species of frogs that live in Costa Rica. After all, hiking through the forest, you may miss seeing a rare frog that is hiding under a fern frond. But when you visit the frog pond, you’re sure to see all the frogs and toads you want. Another living museum in Monteverde is the Serpentarium. Many of the country’s snakes, lizards, and other cold-blooded animals are housed on display here. If snakes appeal to you, you’ll be thrilled to see the fer-de-lance, which is one of the largest and most poisonous snakes in the world. An aggressive snake, it can’t reach you from behind its glass enclosure, but you may still feel a shiver when its hooded eyes shift in your direction. The Bat Jungle in Montverde is another living museum that will have you shuddering with delight. Actually, most bats are harmless and beneficial to the world’s environment. They eat many annoying insects—think mosquitoes, especially—thereby helping to control diseases. This open bat habitat is a wonderful way to learn about these marvelous mammals, without having to worry that one might fly into your hair! Whether your Costa Rica tours take you to Monteverde or some other area of the country, look for the living museums. They will round out your vacation with fun and information that you’ll be happy to share with the folks back home.
