Attractions at the gardens include waterfalls, cloud forest and rainforest, hiking trails, an aviary with numerous species of birds, toucan feeding, insect exhibit, butterfly observatory, capuchin (white-faced) monkeys, black-handed spider monkeys, hummingbird garden, serpentarium (snake exhibit), jaguars, pumas, ocelots, margays, a tica house with a petting zoo and ox cart, ranarium (frog exhibit), orchid exhibit, and heliconia exhibit.  
Walk at a leisurely pace so you can catch all the sights and ask your guide any questions about the local vegetation and wildlife. You'll arrive at the rainforest and waterfalls, where a shuttle bus waits to take you back to the main building for a buffet lunch. 
Your tour ends with return to San Jose for hotel drop-off.

Although pricey, this private tour worked very well for us. We weren't up for the 12-13 hour public tours we wanted something a bit shorter and which allowed us to start a bit later in the morning. Our guide, Abel, was extremely courteous and a very good driver. He went out of his way to point out small details during the tour. We were very satisfied with the experience.
