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

I visited the Quepos area in March 2014 and the weather was amazing about 85 degrees every day. Kids Saving the Rain Forest Animal Sanctuary is a great place to spend an afternoon while visiting the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area. The grounds are clean and beautiful, the staff extremely friendly and willing to answer all your questions. The animal center is... More

Kids Saving the Rain Forest tour is not only interesting and fun but you are truly helping out the animals at the same time. This organization does so much to help injured and abandoned animals that there is nothing to compare it to. They respond to any emergency and the incredible care they give to these animals who eventually will... More

Though the tour is great for kids, I went with a group of adults and found it to be one of the highlights of my trip to Costa Rica! Would DEFINITELY make this a part of your trip if... More
