We arrived at the Sanctuary not sure what to expect. $50 per person for a couple of hours might seem a lot to many people, I can assure you it's an experience worth double !
We were met at the gate by Steve and once parked had an informative and amusing walk up to Steve and Vicki's accommodation and the animal enclosures through beautiful forest. Steve is happy to chat on any subject, we covered politics, geography and of course wildlife. We learnt a little about the flora and fauna in the area and the story of how Steve and Vicki started the rescue centre and the problems uninsulated power lines cause to wildlife across Costa Rica.
Once at the family home we were introduced to Vicki and were served a refreshing fruit juice drink, then we sat down to watch a couple of brief video's about their work and how they are raising awareness with the power companies and local residents and trying to address the power line problems.
Finally the moment had come and we were introduced to the various wildlife that were in the process of being rehabilitated.The animals welfare was always at the forefront of concern, it was a wonderful experience, one we'll never forget.
Steve and Vicki were consummate hosts,and they work tirelessly for the animals, this was an extremely personal activity. Our family would thoroughly recommend a visit here, your entry fee is put to really good use and you'll leave with a warm glow.
Thank you Steve and Vicki for a wonderful visit.
