  • 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.
  • Highlight of my trip! A must do! Beautiful fascinating animals, great tour guide. A little expensive but the money goes to the animals
  • Great place to visit if you love animals and love hanging out with people who are passionate about animals. My family and I chose to come to the Toucan Rescue Ranch over other sanctuaries because we love knowing they help release their animals if possible. Our tour guide Pedro (Im sorry if Im getting his name wrong or if its misspelled) is a fantastic tour guide. He was the best tour guide my family has ever had - super funny, very knowledgeable and obviously loves animals! I would love to come back to this rescue facility every day if I could. My family and I did the breakfast tour with the baby sloths, it was so worth it. You get to see the sloths eat really close up, and you get great pictures. I will say that the owner and all of the workers here really care about respecting the animals. This is not a place where you can touch or pet animals. You won't be able to hold sloths or hold birds. But! If you want to see animals super close up (get amazing pictures), and know youre supporting an amazing group of people doing amazing things, then definitely 100% come by here.
  • They do great work rehabilitating and releasing animals. Definitely animals first. See sloths up close here!!
  • Simply an amazing place. So inspiring to see how they treat the animals and how much they genuinely care.
