INBioparque: An interactive experience with nature!


January 4, 2007
Our second day in Costa Rica, started out with some delicious Costa Rican breakfast, specially that "Gallo Pinto" which is rice and black beans.
Soon after we were on the road to "The National Institute of Biodiversity (INBio) " is a private, public interest, non-profit association, whose mission is to promote a greater awareness of the value of biodiversity, thereby ensuring its conservation and improving the quality of life of human beings.
Upon reaching its tenth anniversary, INBio decided to consolidate its effort to promote bio-literacy in society and created INBioparque in February of 2000 to teach people about Costa Rica’s biological diversity, its value and the importance of conserving it.

INBioparque is an amazing theme park that offers an interactive experience with Nature. Here you will see groupings of plants and trees from the tropical rainforest, Central Valley forest and species from the dry tropical forest and wetlands. On our campus, which covers an area of more than 5 hectares, visitors can observe many bird species and marvel at the colors of the orchids, heliconias and bromeliads. Around the lagoon you can enjoy the butterfly garden and the aquarium and learn about the Farm and its crops. As you hike along our trails you will get a close look at poisonous frogs, bullet ants, boas, caimans, turtles, iguanas and tarantulas, as well as sloths and other native species.
