Six hours, 14 people, 4 cars, 12 entrance tickets with lunch included, and no strollers. That was my day at INBIOparque today. What a hell of a day. One whole day well spent. Oh and I forgot to bring my camera, so I don't have any pictures *duh*. Oh well, I'll just have to go back and soon.
INBIOparque is one of a kind (well, maybe not so much here in Costa Rica), but it is something. What a great and fun way to teach kids and adults about their environment and how to take care of their planet.
Located in Santo Domingo, Heredia. All inclusive entrance tickets for residents are c6.000 colones for adults and c4.400 colones for kids (includes a full lunch with dessert and a drink).
Bring walking shoes, comfortable clothes and maybe a stroller for the little ones as you will be doing a LOT of walking (my kids are troopers though... they walked the whole park and didn't complain ONCE.)
There is a lot to see and a lot to do. Six hours in the park and I didn't get to some of the exhibits... go figure. It's very laid back and tranquil too so you don't have to rush, just take your time and enjoy the scenery.
There is also a gift shop, but for the same quality souvenirs and for half the price, you can go to San Jose Mercado Central... however, getting something small is worth it just for the experience and to have an INBIOparque souvenir (Boobie used his own money and bought a fire ant figurine.)
And don't forget to have a blast.
