Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Guanacaste / Liberia / Ponderosa Adventure Park
Experience close encounters with tropical and exotic animals at Ponderosa Adventure Park. Unlike some other zoos in Latin America, the facilities here prioritize the health and happiness of the animals, who live in open, free-roaming conditions. Resident critters include emus, Iberian mountain goats, gnus, giraffes, ostriches, and zebras. Younger visitors will be delighted with the opportunity to pet some of these creatures. Opt for a guided tour of the park and see the onsite waterfall. Unless you know the city of Liberia very well, take a taxi to the attraction, as the roads to the zoo are difficult to navigate for those new to the area.

It is a tour of approximately 1 hour, respectively on the safari, as they also have waterfalls and other activities. We thought it was a good investment of time and money, it is to get out of the routine and experiment with animals that in our region so far away, seems impossible to see ever, and for that reason I admire the effort to bring them to Guanacaste and give us the opportunity to see them up close. Undoubtedly the Giraffes are the stars of the show, my baby loved them, also the zebras and the ostrich wanted to interact with us. If I recommend it, it is a 100% family friendly activity, and certainly when our little girl grows we will take it back.

Close to the center of Liberia, very tidy, safe and clean. They accept credit cards at the entrance as well as at the food stalls and Gift Shop. They have giraffes, ostriches, antelopes, zebras. My 4-year-old great-sagoted it.
We loved this place. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The safari was wonderful and the commentary was nice. The animals are well cared for and the grounds are beautiful and clean. It was not busy at all and we had the pools to ourselves. The waterfall is beautiful and if you wear a life jacket you can swim right up underneath them. The lunch buffet was simple but nice and more than adequate for us. We would come again and go zip lining for sure.
The animals are OK. The food was not great... There is a pool for kids. Be careful with the ostriches, don't let your kid feed them.
