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

I came to Costa Rica on a 3 week environmental field work course trip and I saved my visit to the rescue ranch for the last day! What an incredible day. My friend and I did the photography tour. Our guide had so much knowledge and he was so funny! I would recommend the photography tour 10/10. It's extremely interactive... More

We stayed here over night in the bungalow- plenty of space and it was a thrill staying with all the animals. We started the morning having breakfast with the babies- sloths and a baby spider monkey. Too cute for words and plenty of time with the animals. At times it felt a little crowded as we had 12 on our... More

What a pleasant but heart touching experience. Went to see the toucans and got to see so much more. Of course you can't help falling in love with the sloths and appreciating how God designed the birds and animals. The love for animals is so easy to see in the talk, care, and plans for the birds and animals. So... More

Wonderful experience for our animal-loving family. Appreciate the fine work these folks are doing. The Facebook and Instagram pages are a great way to stay in touch with the animals' progress. Strongly recommend for day tour or overnight.

I found the Toucan Rescue Ranch just in time before I left Costa Rica. Carol responded very quickly to my desperate mail telling her about my goal to finally see sloths :D She set up a tour for my boyfriend and me right for the next day and it was a great experience! We got to see all of the... More
