Bat Program

Bat Program

Did you know that bats represent 50% (110 species) of Costa Rican mammals?  We invite you to enhance your education, dispel myths you may have heard about these wonderful mammals, and enjoy this adventure into the world of the bats.

This program will provide a multi-media presentation on the history of bats, their classification system, diversity, adaptations, reproduction methods, threats, and more.  And for the most popular part of the Bat Tour, a trained guide will provide visitors a safe opportunity to touch, feed and release safely captured bats.
Visitors can also take a short guided walk (15–30 min.) to see the mist nets used to gently catch these creatures.  The bats are kept for less than 2 hours and the professional methods used assure the well-being of the animals.
Bat Tours are offered from 7:30 p.m–9:30 p.m, all days. Reservations are required until 5:00 p.m.
