See the best of La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano area in just one day with this tour. Start with a hike along the La Fortuna River, continuing to a suspension bridge tucked deep into the jungle. Then walk to a local indigenous village followed by a traditional lunch. In the afternoon, visit the Arenal Volcano for more hiking before wrapping your day up with a soak in a natural thermal river.

We loved doing both of the tours at the rescue center. Lady was very knowledgeable about the sloths, and we enjoyed seeing them. Although there was only three of them there, being a rescue center, you never know how many will be there. At the time we were there, they had a baby names Flash, and two older ones. Lady knew a LOT about sloths and we enjoyed learning all about them. The regular tour was conducted by Carlos, and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. He captured our attention and really seemed to love giving tours. We saw a variety of monkeys, birds, pigs & other animals. We also signed up to volunteer after the tour, which consisted of making the individual bowls of food. It's all based on the type of animal as to what you make. We then went around with Carlos to feed the animals, which was, more or less, him opening a slot in the fence so that you could dump it in there. But, it was still fun to see the animals come running! We would definitely recommend going on both of these tours.

We visited this venue with a tour group and were let off and picked up in the front so not sure of the size of the parking lot. This is an 20 acre all natural habitat for a variety of native animals (ie. birds, monkeys, sloth, iguanas, turtles etc.) with some birds and wildlife really close up in the moving around freely (ie. iguanas, guineas, and peacocks). The staff was very nice and it was an easy leisurely walk through the areas on a smooth walkway. It is set up somewhat like a small zoo but most of the enclosures are roomy and full of foliage so you still sometimes have to search out the wildlife. They have a small gift shop area as well and all areas were maintained nicely including the restrooms. There is a nice restaurant inside the property as well and I was able to get a lovely photo of a beautiful peacock posing for me with his feathers in full spread.

What a great place, doing great work, by really great and wonderful people! We did the tour + volunteering and it was a truly special experience that we will always remember. Carlos's passion for the animals is infectious. Considering the week long volunteering option on our next visit.

Small, nice park easy to walk through. The restaurant was the best part as many birds come right by so great for spotting unusual birds. Food very good and very reasonable compared to others. *If you really want to see sloths you should go to Cahuita National Park & area they are everywhere! More animals by far.

We visited the rescue centre on our recent trip to Costa Rica, and were so pleased that we did. Carlos, our guide was superb. I am a biologist, and it was lovely to see the passion for the animals that Carlos had. His detailed explanation of each of the animals, and their stage in the, often-long, road to return to the wild, was detailed and very interesting. We were glad that we did the 'volunteering' part too, which involved preparing food for various monkeys, birds, etc. This gave a further insight to the work done by the centre. The centre is nothing like a zoo, and is fully focused on the needs of the animals being cared for. Our thanks to Carlos, and a massive Hi 4 to him, and all those who work at the centre.
