  • We had chosen a "Slothies & Coffee Tour" to do something the last morning before we had to travel home. It was a great experience to see the small sloth so close-we hadn't seen so many sloths on our 17-day Costa Rica trip. The wizard told fun and caring about their fine work with to try to get animals made ready to be set free. There were many different animals and birds but lazy animals was the top. Many of the other animals were in cages and therefore hard to get good pictures of. Lazy animals you could photograph up close and without fences or glass in between the animal and the lens. Well worth a visit-both for yourself and to support their good work.

  • 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!
