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

I knew I wanted to take the tour, but I'm also so glad that I stayed the night in one of the two guest houses. Leslie and Jorge made me feel at home and like I was part of the family immediately. I already reviewed the tour attraction, so I'll try to focus on the guest house. I was very... More

An absolutely wonderful experience! We stayed at the Toucan Rescue Ranch for our first two nights when we arrived in Costa Rica. It was a great way to start our vacation; it was so peaceful and welcoming. We loved everything about the Ranch. They truly do an amazing job with the animals. Everyone was friendly, warm and helpful. The tour... More

We had an amazing time at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. My husband and I started our trip from San Jose airport with a tour here, and then stayed overnight. The cottage was quaint and cozy, the staff extremely nice and warm, and the animals were of course, amazing! We loved having the opportunity to learn about the animals at the... More

Wonderful experience! Carol was very welcoming and helpful, she is passionate for the animals. We got to see many babies and we were welcome to walk around the ranch after the tour. The sloths were my very favorite. The guest house was very clean and private. And it was nice to have breakfast on the porch with the birds and... More

This place was amazing! The rooms are your own private cottages with lots of sleeping areas. And the breakfast was great! It was the best gallo pinto I had on the trip. We came to Costa Rica to see the animals of the rainforest, and here we saw more species than anywhere else on our trip. Carol and Leslie gave... More

We stayed 1 night at the end of our Costa Rican adventure, and it wrapped everything up just beautifully. Also, it was great to have a hot shower and a fluffy pillow after staying in cheap hostels all week. We loved getting to know the creatures that live there, as well as witness the welcoming of a sweet as can... More

Our trip to Costa Rica would not have been complete had we not stayed at Toucan Rescue Ranch. Leslie, the owner, is truly a jewel and has a gift with the animals she rehabilitates. It was the most relaxing and wonderful experience. We enjoyed all of the animals and learning about them. My daughter even got to spend her birthday... More
