  • Excellent . Two hours well spent. Will be back with more guests. Also recommending to a grade 3 teacher in Desamparados to bring his class. They would love it.
  • Fantastic place to learn about and see animals up close. Very passionate staff and great program to release animals back into the wild.
  • Great tour guides, super friendly staff and you c am hey surprisingly close to the animals. Those people looking to be up close to sloths, this is the place for you. You're not allowed to hold them because of a lot of issues with attachment and bacteria, but you get so close that it doesn't matter.
  • Was one of my highlights of my Costa Rican trip. They do awesome work here. The guide loved his job and was such a joy to listen too.
  • When you go to Cr be sure to take a tour of this rescue. They do great things!
