Greentique Wildlife Refuge Jungle Night Tour

Discover Manuel Antonio’s Wildest Nightlife Destination.

The Jungle Night Tour is a unique odyssey into the nocturnal world of the Pacific Tropical Wet Forest. Led by your Greentique Certified Guide through the complex ecosystem of the Refuge’s amphibian water gardens, you’ll be immersed in a symphony of the signature sounds of thousands of jungle residents, including more than a dozen species of native frogs, all engaged in the rituals of life in their natural habitat.
