Default Hiking/Frog-seeking near Potrero, Costa Rica

Hey everyone! Heading to Potrero, Costa Rica on a dive trip in February and have a day off to go hike and would love to try and find some frogs while i'm down there. Anyone have any recommendations on where to go? Not sure if i'm within range of finding some pumilio on the pacific side.

You're unlikely to see pumilio that far northwest. If you head over to Arenal Volcano Nat'l Park you might have a better chance. Even better would be to make the trip to La Selva, they're everywhere.

You're more likely to see marine/cane toads, maybe red-eyed tree frogs, and the small rain frogs that are all over the place.

I have been to Costa Rica just once, and I will say that I was a little disappointed when it came to the amphibian diversity that I observed. I was anticipating it everywhere. I was on the Pacific side near Tamarindo. Awesome bird life, diverse reptile life, monkeys, and amazing insects all around. But very few frogs that I observed. I stayed for a couple of weeks and was more focused at the time on surfing and birdwatching, but was surprised I didn't see more amphibians. Next time I go, I plan to hit up the other side as well as the interior. Hope to have more luck. And this time I will definitely make a point of searching them out.
