We stayed at the ranch for our first night in Costa Rica and it was one of the best starts to a trip we've had. The accommodation is a cute little guesthouse right in the middle of the ranch with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The ranch itself is brilliant! Such a wide variety of animals either... More

This facility gets the purpose of a rescue sanctuary. They do everything they can to be able to release an animal back into the wild but will continue to take care of them at the facility if they can;t survive in the wild. The name is Toucan Rescue Ranch but they have many animals that have been rescued not just... More

We booked online through email correspondence which was great, also happy to take payment on the day rather than insisting up front. We opted for the $30 tour which is outstanding value for money. The range of animals is great, you can see the longer standing residents have their own personalities which the staff are aware of! This brings me... More

What a trip. Drove from Poas Lodge near the Poas Volcano and it took a little over a couple hours to get there. Had an appointment for 2:00 P.M. and was early so when to town and had a great pizza and beer for lunch. When we returned, we started by having an introduction to the wonderful work that Leslie...

True angels run this place which is around a half hour drive from the capital, San Jose. Carol took us around on a photography tour and we couldn't have been more happier and overwhelmed by the experience. We saw toucans, owls, Mexican hairy porcupines, otters, grison, spider monkeys and lots of sloths, including the babies! They work so hard here... More

Leslie and our guide, Pedro, were fantastic. We did breakfast with the babies and I could not have been more excited to see sloths and a baby monkey! I literally could not wipe the smile off my face. It is in all of our group pictures. This trip is so worth it and you will love every second you learn... More

This was such an amazing place to go to see animals of all kind. We did the breakfast with baby sloths tour on and it was absolutely amazing. It is a very easy drive from San Jose. The people working there was really what made it such a great place to visit. Our guide, Pedro, was so informative about each... More

We cannot say enough for everyone all involved who make this wonderful facility a success. To the owner, Leslie....your story of one of the sloths, "your miracle sloth". The emotion in your voice proves that these animals are so fortunate to have found you and everyone involved. Job Well Done!

We have become very sceptical about "Rescue Centres" as we have seen quite a few that have dubious 'rescue' credentials but a few tame animals that tourists can have their photo taken with - for a price. This place however is a genuine rescue centre that lets tourists in to help pay the bills. It has outgrown it's initial Toucan... More

My husband and I did the breakfast with babies tour, on our last morning in San Jose before flying home. It is a convenient location for a great trip away from the city, and a very easy journey for when you want to escape San Jose. The visit feels quite informal and not staged at all, so you get to...
