After reading TA reviews, my husband & I decided we would like to stay for 2 nights at the Toucan Rescue Ranch. From my first contact with Carol via email until we waved good bye to Leslie when leaving the ranch, the experience was a very special & unique. We woke each morning in our little casita to the endless...

Loved the "breakfast with the babies". Leslie and her husband are wonderful hosts. The place is amazing if you want to see the beauty of Costa Rica's wildlife. We fell in love. Everyone should take the tour. Hope to stay on our next trip.

My Husband and I stayed at the B & B (Feb 2014) to see the animals up close and personal. The owner hired a driver for us for our duration of our vacation. Ride from the airport to the hillside animal rescue B & B was lovely. Driver /guide was great. Casita was amazing. Visit with the animals was priceless....

Booked a night at the Toucan Rescue Ranch on my last night in Costa Rica. We had just came from river rafting so we got in late. After being on the river for days and camping this clean room and comfy bed was a real treat! We checked out the animals and walked 15 minutes to a restaurant before calling...

This place was amazing. We saw so many different types of animals up close...different types of toucans, porcupines, river otter, hawk, owls, owlets, some sort of monkey, an endangered wild cat, macaws, ducks, and SLOTHS. Two and three toed, and baby twin sloths. They were so cute, I'll never forget it. You can't touch the sloths. Most of the animals...

We stayed here for one night at the end of our holiday to Costa Rica. Leslie and her staff were absolutely wonderful, they showed us around the grounds and introduced us to all of their rescue animals, they all had such sad stories of how they arrived at the sanctuary. The bungalow we stayed in felt very homely and we...

I stayed here for two nights at the end of a two week trip to Costa Rica. You can take a tour of the ranch; however, an overnight stay is an absolute must for any animal lover. But, even if you don’t swoon for sloths, you’ll want to stay here. This place is a little slice of paradise, located near...

I only stayed here one night (...because I didn't have much time), but could've stayed here longer. Carol made it easy to book, and her emails were always prompt and courteous. The room is quite large and there is a big kitchenette inside. You can order in food from outside, which is very convenient. It is nice to sleep where...
