“Get close with the howler monkeys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2015

A visit to SIBU supports the mission of rescuing and rehabbing injured or orphaned monkeys for release back to the wild. The sanctuary is a beautiful place to visit, and a highly rewarding experience.

Very cool place. The owners have made it their life's mission to protect the monkeys through rehabilitation and education. Our whole family loved the tour.

“Amazing place ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2015

My husband and I were staying in playa Junquillal and made the difficult 1.5 hour drive south on really bad roads but what we found at sibu was worth every bump! These people are amazing and care so much for all the animals of Costa Rica! They are passionate and knowledgeable and make your visit worth every penny you donate. Don't miss this amazing experience.
