Welcome to INBio Park, or INBio Parque, the ecological park located just minutes away from San Jose in Santo Domingo. This "todo naturaleza" park is a perfect introduction into everything that is natural Costa Rica, itself being dedicated to scientific research that promotes the conservation of the country's rich biodiversity. Your group will have the chance to participate in several different interactive experiences, perfect for families, student groups, classes, and foreign visitors. You will have the option of taking a self-guided tour, a guided bilingual tour, or spend your time looking outside in the various onsite gardens.
A guided tour will begin with a short presentation about the park and its vast diversity, then lead into walking among the number of trials with different samples of the local ecosystems. See bits of rainforest, pre-montane forests, wetland, and dry forest and all the creatures within each before ending with a presentation about conservation and national park preservation internationally. You will see frogs, butterflies, iguanas, sloths, birds, alligators, turtles, and snakes, as well as several different and uniquely beautiful orchids, heliconia, and bromeliads. Explore the medicinal herbs garden before heading over to Restaurante Heliconias, the perfect place to find a quick and delicious bite to eat. The Costa Rican creole here is out of this world! There is also an onsite cafe/ice cream shop, ensuring the very best amenities for your educational and intensely gorgeous stop here at INBIo Parque.
