The love for the animals at Toucan Rescue Ranch is so apparent that you feel it the moment you walk onto the property. The variety of animals that they have rescued and rehabilitated is evidence of the respect that Minae has for Leslie, Jorge, Carol, and the rest of the team. They are able to care for and rehabilitate animals... More

We didn't stay here, but did a tour of the ranch, and it was amazing! I did not expect the variety of animals they had here, it's not just toucans! I loved that you can get up close to get some awesome photos, and we learned a ton about the animals and the wildlife conservation efforts in Costa Rica. If... More

Our family of five (kids ages 7-16) enjoyed our tour here. It was about two hours long and we saw owls, monkeys, sloths, toucans, otter and other animals. My daughters favorites were the babies- a baby spider monkey and baby sloth. She rescues animals from the wild and tries to reintigrate them into the wild if possible. I felt good... More

Me and my cousin went here for a quick afternoon tour. It was great! The tour guide was very informative and told us all about how they help the animals. The little baby spider monkey Noelle was ADORABLE! It was fun to watch her play around in her cage and try to get our attention. We got to get very... More

Visiting the Toucan Rescue Ranch is not only a chance to see a great range of wildlife, but you're also supporting the Ranch's ongoing rescue and rehabilitation efforts. On the tour, Leslie shares the stories of the inhabitants and gives you the chance to appreciate how special these birds and animals are. There is also a small range of locally-produced... More

We chose the Rescue Ranch at first because of its proximity to the airport. However, it turned out to be one of our favorite places. Leslie arranged for a driver, Randall, to pick us up from the airport. We liked him so much that we hired him to take us on to the Manuel Antonio area and later from Poas... More

One word: SLOTHS. Actually, two words: BABY SLOTHS. I emailed the day before arriving to Costa Rica to see if I could set up a tour, and they were very accommodating. My mom and I grabbed a taxi and then called the ranch so that the staff there could give the driver directions. There are fluent Spanish and English speakers... More

My husband and I had an amazing time at the Toucan Rescue Ranch last month. We arrived in the afternoon for a tour, and wow, those animals were absolutely precious. It was so cool to see the fascinating wildlife of Costa Rica up close, and sad to learn about all the ways in which these animals are abused. The animals... More

What a wonderful place and what wonderful people. I thought that we were just going to see Toucans. Was surprised at all the different animals and birds that have been rescued. The couple that run the place are so dedicated to all the animals.
