I contacted Carol from Toucan to ask if my little sister could volunteer in some way if we made a visit to the ranch. Even thought the min stay for volunteers is 1 month, since we were staying almost a week, Carol told me she would speak to the owner, Leslie and get back with us. So here I am,... More

This is a wonderful work that these folks are doing with these beautiful animals. I visited with a group from Sol Education Abroad and we all fell in love with these animals. This ranch is funded solely by donations. If you love animals and love a happy ending, you will not want to miss this!

We spent a morning here with Pedro a staff member to teach us about this rehab centre. It is very close to San Jose and well worth visiting. We saw baby and adult sloths, spider monkeys, birds of prey, birds from the parrot family, amd much much more....and of course toucans!

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.
