I've done all the regular touristy things and wanted to check out something new. This place is not a zoo. They either rehabilitate animals or keep them if and only if they are beyond return to the wild. Its a good reminder as to why wild animals are not meant to be pets. They then become someone else's problem when... More

My 10 year old and I did the tour at KSTR today! We were so impressed by the work they are doing there. Tour started out with a baby sloth in the clinic munching on a leaf. Absolutely adorable! Then we got to tour around and see a wide variety of species of monkeys and other animals. Our guide did... More

We visited Kids Saving the Rain Forest on our second day in Costa Rica with our 9 and 11 year old sons and it was wonderful. After learning about the wildlife and some of the perils that the local critters face, I believe that our boys really saw the rest of our trip through CR in a whole new light.... More

We went here with kids ages 6 and 8 and we enjoyed the tour. We learned a lot about what these guys do for the rainforest and it is impressive. They built monkey bridges for the animals to cross busy streets so the don't get hit by cars or electrocuted from crossing on electric wires. The next day we actually... More

I took the tour of the animal reserve and was not disappointed. It was only myself and my boyfriend on the tour, even though we didn't book a private tour. We were able to see at least 5 types of monkeys, sloths (adult and baby), parrots and other wildlife up close and personal. The tour guide, Barb, was knowledgeable and... More

Encouraged by other reviews we booked a tour here - just two adults and were totally captivated by the recovering baby sloths. We also learned about other animals such as monkeys and parrots. A worthwhile well run charity good to visit. The setting is very beautiful but would be a challenge to find - we used the transportation option

This was really an excellent way to spend a couple of hours. One might expect that it's just for kids, but honestly, I think the adults enjoyed this, as did our kids who range from 18 to 23! This is a very unique way to see and understand wild-life in CR, and the challenges that the rainforest animals are facing.... More

We stayed at the Blue Banyan and took a tour with Pedro. We loved it and learned so much! The volunteer staff is obviously so committed and are doing wonderful, important work. It was the best part of my trip to Costa Rica. (Please understand, though, that the sanctuary is small and a little off the beaten path. If this... More

Large group of nine with four kids aged 6 to 10. They really enjoyed the tour and our guide Pedro was very informative and patient with them. One cannot predict what animals one might see due to the nature of how the sanctuary works, for instance, we did get to see the two cutest baby sloths. However, they do have... More
