To see what this organization accomplishes is an eye-opener. Our guides were very informative and the manager, Chip, was a gracious host. This team do amazing work with the forgotten animals of the rainforest. Kudos to you all for your humanity.

Kids Saving the Rain Forest is a great facility and they are doing awesome work. However, we found it disappointing. On the positive side, the animals they have for you to see are interesting and the guide was very knowledgeable. They had 6 sloths in...More

There are other rescue centers in CR which do similar type of work to KSTR and their tours are significantly cheaper. For example, Proyecto Asis near La Fortuna charges $31 for 90 mins tour which is half of what KSTR charges. Also, keep in mind...More
