We present an inventory of amphibians and reptiles of San Isidro de Dota, northwest of the Cordillera de Talamanca in the Central Pacific of Costa Rica. The study was conduced from January to August 2012 in premontane wet forest from 689 m to 800 m elevation. We found a total of 56 species, including 30 species of amphibians and 26 of reptiles. It results striking the presence of the frog Leptodactylus insularum, uncommon above 400 m elevation, and the lizard Coloptychon rhombifer, a very uncommon species.
