Gibson’s birthday is January 3.

On this visit, the hollywood star and five others took in the Refugio Herpetológico de Santa Ana, located in Alto de las Palomas, Santa Ana. Rodolfo Vargas, biologist and founder of the refugio, confirmed the Gibson visit. Vargas told La Nacion, ‘it;s curious, we first received a phone call asking if there were many people in the park, then we ran into Gibson, by surprise. We didn’t know he was coming, we were awestruck”.

Alis Bocacchia, the guide for the Gibson visit to the refugio, said, “I thought he was more fussy for being famous, but nothing to do, very nice people. He liked the idea that here we rescue animals, rehabilitate and reintegrate them. The whole conversation was in English. He said he loves the country”.
