Traveler Comments

Excellent guide and animals of interest

- LINDA Z, MAR 2019

This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Costa Rica! We are so glad that we did. It was awesome!! We even spent the first night in the San Jose area so we could do this. That worked out well rather than having to get in a van for a 3+ hour trip to Arenal after spending all day flying. The Rescue is very well done. It is on private property and you learn how it all got started. There are a large variety of animals some can be rehabilitated and released back to nature and some cannot. They rely on private funding.

Sloths have exploded in popularity lately, but Costa Rican wildlife centers have championed these animals long before they were the tree-dwelling mammals du jour. This tour allows you to experience two-toed sloths up close while you enjoy a nice cup of Costa Rican coffee.
