Boas, Mussaranas and Red-Eye Tree Frogs

Night tours at El Remanso are lead by naturalist guide Rinaldo. The tour starts usually at 5.30, once the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean down here in the Osa Peninsula. Commonly seen wildlife during this tour includes spiders, frogs, toats, snakes, opposums and sometimes even sleeping mammals. The tour usually starts with some time next to the El Remanso pool or our new "frog pond" where different types of frogs and toats can be found. The most looked for is certainly the red-eye tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas), the most "photogenic of the frogs in the pond"!
