A group of us had the most wonderful morning at the Ranch with our very knowledgable guide Pedro telling us all about the amazing creatures that are so beautifully cared for by staff and volunteers at the ranch. Some are permanent residences and some will be released into the wild ! We fell in love with the gorgeous three toed... More

On a recent trip to Costa Rica, meeting baby sloths was a must. What better place to come than the Toucan Rescue Ranch! Since meeting baby sloths was the most important part of the vacation for my traveling companion, we took the Breakfast with the Babies tour. We were served breakfast while the baby sloths were climbing all over (and... More

The owners really care about animals and all the proceeds go back to help care for the animals at this sanctuary. This is a much better experience than a zoo - you get up close with the animals and hear their stories, and they are treated a million times better. Our guide was both hilarious and informative, making our experience... More

This was an amazing visit! The tour was so interesting to learn so much about these animals and to be so close to them. The work you are doing is truly amazing. Our youngest ones were a little impatient but you were great about trying to show them interesting things about the animals. We absolutely loved the tour and visit... More

I needed to see a sloth in Costa Rica. We found this rescue center online and wanted to do the Breakfast with the Babies tour. I was unsure of the weather and other plans so waited until last minute try to set things up. The day we hoped to tour, tours were not available; however, the owner of the rescue... More

This is a nice way to see some of the wildlife of Costa Rica up close and donate to a worthy enterprise.

We had a great time at the Toucan Rescue Ranch! My sister and I really wanted to see some baby sloths in Costa Rica, so we went to the Breakfast with the Babies tour. This place seemed like a very caring and knowledgable center, and we felt happy to support their program through scheduling a guided tour. The baby sloths... More

As we love animals we were very excited about this tour. But at our arrival we were just shocked by the size of the cages. We expected to see the animals in a natural like environment, but what we saw was a zoo or an animal collection. Two squirrels were stuffed in a 1m^3 sized cage, a toucan also in... More

Hi Angela M, After reading your review we're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your tour. We just wanted to take some time to clarify some of your concerns: Size of Cages: All enclosures are built with the animal in mind. For example, Tabu, our Oncilla, is built large for potential breeding. Our other enclosures for species like... More
