Great experience whether traveling with a family or just a couple. Fantastic tour - informative, genuine, and personal. we saw toucan's, macaws, monkeys, and many other animals but it was the sloths that stole the show. Whether adult or the baby sloths they were nursing it was a great experience, up close and personal. The staff was friendly and did... More

Wow this place is brilliant. We got there at 8 am for breakfast and to watch the baby sloths being fed before we were given a tour of the facility. They are doing a wonderful job and obviously have a passion for helping all kinds of animals. I felt very envious of them and wish I could have stayed and... More

Our family of 10 recently returned from Costa Rica and this ranch was the creme de la creme of our vacation. So many interesting animals to see, great stories and information and terrific guides and owner. Loved every minute of it!

Our family LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the Toucan Rescue Ranch. We felt very welcomed, wonderful little bed and breakfast and the tour was very informative. You are not allowed to hold any of the animals,but with good reason! After rehabilitation, they want to release the animals back into the wild if possible and so the less handling the better. Totally respect... More

Toucan Rescue Ranch is much more than toucans. I have never had a personal experience with such exotic animals as they are being rehabilitated for release. The sloths were so adorable and we watched and took pics as Leslie (the owner) fed them. We actually stayed one night at their guesthouse and it was fantastic. A quaint cottage like home... More

We stayed here 2 nights in the little guest house. Small but had everything we needed and comfortable-internet didn't get through the front door but was available on the small deck. The cottage is next to the owl enclosures and earplugs are in the room but we didn't need them, after the crashing waves of the Osa , it felt... More

We visited recently and saw the cutest animals ever! A lot of the stories are really sad but that only lifts our will to raise awarness. The place is small but the animals are worth it, there are several species of birds and mammals. I would suggest to take a look for anyone that will be in the San José... More

This is a very beautiful place for tourists to go. There are very cute baby sloths, toucans, owls, macaws and more! It was a very good expirience. This should be the main attraction in Costa Rica. But if you go here, don't forget to bring a camera! You can take pictures of the cutest sloths and of the rest of... More

This place was great - you get to see sloths both older and tiny babies up close, variety of toucans, macaws, owls, several other animals and one of our favorites was the local porcupine type animal. They rescue and rehabilitate animals here with the goal of releasing them if possible. A lot of effort and love is displayed towards the... More

How often do you get a chance to hang out and feed baby sloths? They are doing great work here and be sure to book a breakfast with the babies tour, it is well worth the time and money to get up close to some exotic animals. We went as a couple, but definitely something we would bring children to.... More
