This place was amazing. We saw so many different types of animals up close...different types of toucans, porcupines, river otter, hawk, owls, owlets, some sort of monkey, an endangered wild cat, macaws, ducks, and SLOTHS. Two and three toed, and baby twin sloths. They were so cute, I'll never forget it. You can't touch the sloths. Most of the animals... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of our holiday to Costa Rica. Leslie and her staff were absolutely wonderful, they showed us around the grounds and introduced us to all of their rescue animals, they all had such sad stories of how they arrived at the sanctuary. The bungalow we stayed in felt very homely and we... More

I stayed here for two nights at the end of a two week trip to Costa Rica. You can take a tour of the ranch; however, an overnight stay is an absolute must for any animal lover. But, even if you don’t swoon for sloths, you’ll want to stay here. This place is a little slice of paradise, located near... More

I only stayed here one night (...because I didn't have much time), but could've stayed here longer. Carol made it easy to book, and her emails were always prompt and courteous. The room is quite large and there is a big kitchenette inside. You can order in food from outside, which is very convenient. It is nice to sleep where... More

This is a rescue venture that houses several different animals and birds, including several sloths. The owners live on the property and pretty much devote their lives to the animals, as everything is done by donations. I stayed one night in one of the cabins and regret that I didn't have more time. I arrived in the afternoon and pretty... More

This was our first stop on our trip to Costa Rica and may have been our best! A taxi was sent to pick us up from the airport and then Carol greeted us on arrival. We stayed overnight in the guest house and it's a beautiful place. There's a double bed, single bed and bunk bed. A sofa, dining room... More

We just spent one night at the Toucan Rescue Ranch and had a great time. We arrived in the afternoon for the tour and stayed till midday the next day, which was enough time to enjoy the company of the animals. We saw the sloths, monkeys, toucans, otter, porcupines, and many other birds. The absolute highlight was breakfast with the... More

We stayed in the bungalow on site for 1 night, which included the tour, and only have good things to say about the rescue ranch. The owners clearly have a strong passion for their birds and animals and the tour was interesting. It's definitely worth a visit even if you don't get a chance to stay over, but would recommend...

We booked the guest house for the first night of our 2 week vacation in Costa Rica and boy, was that the right decision. It's just a fascinating place. We arrived later than we wanted due to traffic from the airport, so it was dark and we were hungry, but Leslie was waiting for us with a menu in hand... More
