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...

Had a great morning at Toucan Rescue Ranch. Nice breakfast and excellent guide Pedro. Watched the baby sloth feeding. Toured the ranch and got up close with the sloths. Personal small tour (4 people) highly recommended!

Congratulations to the owner and all the staff who are working so hard at this ranch to rehabilitate animals and if possible return them to the wild. We took the private tour and spent over 2 hours learning about the animals and how they are cared for. It was an afternoon to remember. Toucans , baby Sloths playing in the...

This is a really special spot full of special volunteers doing really great work. Our two hour tour was incredible, Zara was so knowledgeable, funny, sweet and personable and we loved every minute.

We stayed one night in the guest cottage at the very beginning of our Costa Rican adventure. What a perfect way to start. After checking n to the cute, clean, and well maintained cottage we were free to wander around and explore. There are also plenty of taxis and Ubers available for a quick ride to grab a bite to...

We stayed here for 2 days and enjoyed it very much. The breakfast with the babies is fun as is the tour, apart from that you are free to wander wherever and whenever you like. We have visited one or two refuges here and there where we felt the animals were almost part of a business venture, but not so...
