My fiance and I experienced this with Alexi and had a great time. She was very informative, answered all our questions, and fun to talk to! We did the Slothies & Coffees which was totally worth it! Coffee and pastries were delicious and the added time seeing and learning about the sloths was so cool! We got lots of pictures in the meantime and heard stories about sloths from their handler. Also - the best way to see wildlife while being safe and donating to a great cause in Costa Rica

This is the second time I have stayed at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. Both stays have been indescribable! This is a rescue family that cares deeply about their animals and works hard to rehab their rescues and get them ready for release back into the wild. They are the real deal, not a zoo trying to make money on showing animals and selling pictures with an animal perched on your head. You will see more sloths and baby sloths then anywhere else. They get way too many sloths in to rescue due to power line electrocution accidents. They talk a lot about the animals stories and when talking to every one of the volunteers, interns and owners it is clear they care deeply for the well being of the animals! And do i really need to talk much about how ridiculously cute and amazing sloths and baby sloths are? Wow! We stayed one night at the ranch and we're treated like royalty. They thanked us for our patronage and included us in many activities including getting to tag along and observe night time feedings of

2 years ago I visited Toucan Rescue ranch near San Jose.....giving lockdown and not being able to visit places like central America, I heard about a virtual tour of the sloths and other animals at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. Had a v knowledgeable biologist, Maria, who showed me the baby and older sloths, was full of interesting information and facts. Also saw the toucans, monkey and even the veterinary area where rescued animals are brought. It cost USD 25 and was worthwhile and you are supporting a good cause too.

Loved the Virtual Zoom tour I did this week! I was able to feel like I was there in Costa Rica with all the beautiful animals this great organization is rescuing. It was fun to see the sloths and get behind the scenes looks at what they do to rehabilitate the animals. Check out their website to schedule totally worth it!!!

I was at the Ranch March 4th, 2020. The facility is oriented towards the needs of the birds/animals which is ideal. I appreciated that they do not allow guests to feed or touch the animals. They work to ensure as many of the animals as possible are able to be reintroduced into the wild. The ones that must remain due to disabilities, are taken care of in as natural a setting as they can have. The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. The two hour tour of animal enclosures was in a viewing area mostly in the sun (at this time of year) so wear sunscreen or wear sun-blocking cover-ups and hats/umbrellas. Bring water. There is a fair amount of standing so if you have mobility issues, bring walker with seat. Note you will be on slightly uneven grass. Good washrooms are available. Advance ticket required. Gift shop available with proceeds providing further support for this important organization.
