Juan was our guide and was very personable and knowledgeable. First we visited the Sloth Rescue, but in fact there are many different species there. They really depend on visitors to help raise the money for the animals' care, some of which have been rescued after being hit by

Dear client... THank you so much for your comments and we are glad to know you had a great time at the Ranch. Regarding what you mentioned about the driver, certainly it is a short drive from any Hotel in San Jose to the Ranch and the certified guides at the Ranch are ready to welcome you and provide you with the full information during the tour. 85% of the price you paid goes to the ranch funds as a donation that will help this place to continues with its good work taking care of injured animals. We would like to thank you again becuase with your visit you are being part of this great project.

Absolutely loved this experience. Guide was knowledgeable and we got to see four baby sloths up close as they climbed around and ate hibiscus flowers. The toucans were interesting as were the other birds and unexpected animals like a river otter. This place does great work

We were picked up at the hotel on time and traveled inside an air-conditioned bus. There were only 6 of us so we had a small group and were able to ask all kinds of questions. Our Guide Omar was very knowledgeable. We went on to a church and ox cart factory. Well worth the trip.
