If you dont mind risking entry fee and maybe guided tour fee (the park's guided group tours are $25 per adult), and keep a spirit of adventure as there's never a guarantee of what you'll see, go for it. You're already in MV, and there's...More

Don’t waste your money here, as there’s nothing to see. Total rip off tourist trap. Go to La Fortuna and visit Bogarin Walking Trail. Ask for William. You can thank me later.

We had done several other night walks in various parts of CR during our trip. This was by far the worst. With over 100 people roaming the same 20 acres, they were doing more scaring of the animals than finding them. In other walks we...More

We booked the night before. But a couple days might be wise. They do go out in multiple groups at various times. Hope this helps.

There were none whatsoever in December. We did get bitten by army ants however. Wearing socks, boots and perhaps tucking your pants in to your socks or wearing pants with a fitted cuff would protect you.
