KSTR does a ton of amazing things -- reforesting and preserving habitat, animal rescue center and animal sanctuary. My kids (ages 7 and 9) and I toured their wonderful animal sanctuary today. Wow! It was extremely informative and inspiring. We all highly recommend!

We took our son (5 yrs) on a tour in March, and it was fantastic! We learned so much about the monkeys, sloths, toucans, and other animals of Costa Rica. Like how sloths can be electrocuted by hanging on power lines if they aren’t insulated....More

We were so excited to visit. Our guide was great and we were the only ones. We were super psyched too see monkeys. They were so so very cute. We loved every second of it and learned so much!

We had white faced monkeys feeding from our hands and held a small caiman. The guide was fantastic and the tour one of the best we took during our Costa Rican Vacation

Excellent service in planning our entire trip to Costa Rica in January 2017. We loved all the places we visited, and the recommendations for places to see and stay were superb.

This was a very nice educational experience to understand what this organization does to protect the local wildlife. This is not a zoo, but a rescue sanctuary for animals that need it. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a ton while getting close...More

Don't get me wrong, this project is doing a great job of looking after animals, but the tour was so badly organised that I can't give any more than 2 stars. The host was so strange, from the moment we turned up it was clear...More
