I visited the Tree of Life today and had a really good experience. The 2 hours we spent there flew by as we looked at the interesting plants and wildlife. I don't like zoos, because I can't stop thinking about how the animals should be free. I was able to enjoy this experience knowing that this place exists to help the animals.

My only regret is my late arrival. I missed the first part of the tour because the walk from Cahuita took longer than expected.

What they do and how they do it is great. Unfortunately they are not that well know yet but you can see that they care about the animals and what is more important that they try everything to bring them back to wildlife, if not possible then they will give the love and care in the rescue center which is build up beautifully with lots of flowers, special trees etc. The tour itself is also very interesting lots of things to see and lots of information is given.

It's realy worth it to visit this rescue center. The owner is very enthousiastic and she'll tell you a lot about the many plants and flowers in the botanical garden. The animals are well cared and by visiting the park you'll support the good work these people do. So when you're in Cahuita visit the national park but don't forget to go visit "Tree of Life", it's not far from the village (you can walk) and definitely worth it.

This place is amazing! The variety of plants and animals is stunning. Clearly these people care a lot about the animals they rescue. There are little write-ups near each animal so the guests can learn a bit about them. The cages are close enough almost to interact with the animals, although I wouldn't suggest it as they are still wild animals. We ended up spending much more time here than we anticipated and loved every bit of it! I highly recommend it!

The Tree of Life Rescue Center is a really beutiful place! You can see lots of different kind of animlas, even special ones like a Jaguarundi, and the whole park is full of plants and flowers. the owner is a real nice women, who is able to respond all of your questions concerning the park. And the animals are benefiting of your entrance fee or donation directly. So its realy worth going there!
