All reviews boat ride pet trade injured animals costa rica toed sloths rehab center spider monkeys these beautiful creatures great love wonderful opportunity educational tour saw dolphins dream come true carol sweetie donation rehabilitation
Carol and her Team are doing incredibly important work in this rain forest sanctuary. Our visit there was educational and fun. The Spider Monkey named Sweetie is adorable!!! She stole our hearts with her antics! This place is worth the effort to get there.
Sweetie, the precocious spider monkey, was the highlight - climbing up the back of our male group members.. Our guide, Ben, did his best to manage us and Sweetie, while imparting the most knowledge he could. The up close and personal interaction with sloths was...More
We visited from Puerto Jimenez while waiting for our flight to Corcovado Park. It was definitely a great experience. First on the boat ride over we looked for and saw many dolphins who came to check out our boat. Even though we were there on...More
Our family enjoyed our visit to the Osa Wildlife Sanctuary. Our favorite exhibit was the 2 Toed Sloths. It was a educational tour and an enjoyable morning. It is only accessible by boat but that added to our experience as we saw dolphins on the...More
This sanctuary can only be reached by boat. We got to see many dolphins on the way. The sanctuary is dedicated to rehabilitating injured and orphaned birds and animals so that they can be returned to the wild. There are some favorites that live there...More
A visit to this wildlife rehab center is fascinating and helps the work being done. Injured animals from all over the Osa are rehabbed and often re-introduced into the wild. Carol is a saint for doing this work.
What a great activity. Kim our guide really loves what she does. The tour was informative and it's nice that a place like this exists to give extra lovin to these beautiful creatures. Highlights were Gus the sloth with whom I fell in love and...More
Very informative and worthwhile. The staff is very caring for these animals that would otherwise die if left in the wild. The $25 donation seems hardly nothing with the amount it must take to maintain this sanctuary. It was amazing to feed a sloth and...More
A really worthwhile organisation that keeps animals and birds that could not exist in the wild, due to infirmity etc. Access is by sea, so a boat trip is required. You may see dolphins and whales in the bay and you are met by a...More

You will need to make arrangements ahead of time. You can only reach the sanctuary by boat, so you will need to make arrangements for a water taxi to take you across the bay. Often the taxi operator or company you reserve the taxi through can make a reservation for you at the sanctuary and then you pay cash when you arrive. Note, they do not want you taking purses and backpacks through the sanctuary so you need to leave anything you bring on the boat.

There are water taxis that can you hire at the dock in Puerto Jiminez. you can also call around to different resorts in Puerto Jiminez (Lios Rios, I believe is one) who sometimes offers transportation to and from Puerto Jiminez to the sanctuary. you can only travel by boat and they will drop you off and come back when it's time to leave. it is not an easy task so research research research places in Puerto Jimenez for tours there. it will not be cheap either because you are pretty much renting a private water taxi unless you have enough people to pitch in but it is well worth the effort and cost. you will not be disappointed.

Agree with earlier answer. Easy to walk in, brush off sand, and slip shoes back on. As the spider monkeys tend to greet you, though, make sure you have belongings secured while you work with shoes. Also... No water bottles... More
Agree with earlier answer. Easy to walk in, brush off sand, and slip shoes back on. As the spider monkeys tend to greet you, though, make sure you have belongings secured while you work with shoes. Also... No water bottles and do not apply bug repellent to arms or hands or you won't be able to tough the monkeys.
