Although this began as a toucan rescue ranch and there are many toucans, the height of the visits is seeing the baby sloths from 3 months to 2 1/2 year. We had a 2 hour tour for $38. It begins with background by Pedro, a Costa Rican who has been there for a year, and a video on the founder...

Leslie and Zara thank you for an amazing educational tour of your LIFE WORK! What a gift you are, as well the entire staff and volunteers. Because of your love knowledge and compassion you help to free the spirits of many trapped and injured animals in Costa Rica. Thank you for all you do! Namaste'

We visited here in March and chose the Breakfast with Babies and tour. It meant an early start but it was worth every minute. After a delicious breakfast the sloth babies join you in their tubs and are fed while you watch. It's wonderful to see them close up and hear about the work that this organisation does to further...

A great trip out, for $35 you get a 2 hour tour, which ours went over. We were welcomed warmly by the staff and shown to a seating area where they start with a brief overview of the history of the ranch, they then take you around to see the different animals they have and explain their history and their...

Want to see and learn tons about local wildlife? This the BEST place to do it! See toucans, baby and adult sloths, macaws, owls, monkeys, porcupines, and more! With the added bonus of donating and helping rescue and rehab these wonderful creatures! Learning about the release program was even cooler when we got to our final destination, Tulemar in Manuel...

My boyfriend and I just got back from Costa Rica, absolutely beautiful place! We had the opportunity to visit the Toucan Rescue Ranch just outside of San Jose. Sloths have always been my favorite animal, so we splurged and did the "Lunch with the Babies" tour and we were not disappointed. From the second we arrived to the second we...

What a wonderful experience we had at the Toucan rescue ranch! A warm welcome and a beautiful little house for our family of four to stay in, very clean and very comfortable. A delicious breakfast and one to one views seeing baby sloths being fed and tour of the ranch was both touching and fascinating. I cannot recommend this experience...

We have visited here twice and the most recent time was as great as before. The center is growing and the new educational pavillion greatly expands the good work they do in getting the word out about the need to treat wildlife with respect and compassion. The tour is great, Pedro made it fun as well as educational and was...

My wife and I capped off a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica with a visit to the rescue ranch and we're glad we did. They were easy to find by car and were happy to book us a tour by e-mail. I highly recommend the tour. It is over 2 hours and you really get up close and personal with...

You want to support this place, and to see for yourself the great stuff they are doing. We stayed in the guest house, had "breakfast with the babies" and took a tour of the property. Leslie, her husband, and the entire staff were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Seeing that little baby sloth eat... words cannot describe the joy. The guest...
