Toucan Rescue Ranch (TRR) focuses on the care, rehabilitation and study of Costa Rican toucans and other wildlife. We receive and care for confiscated, sick and injured wildlife from government agencies. TRR gives animals a loving home with the goal of providing appropriate medical treatment, rehabilitation and then, when possible, returning wildlife back to its natural environment. The Toucan Rescue Ranch is a licensed Costa Rican wildlife rescue facility and a 501(c)3 charitable organization in the United States (EIN: 80-0516453).
Amazing rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife. We loved the "Coffee With the Slothies" morning tour. It was delightful to see the sloths up close and learn how they are rehabilitated so they can hopefully be returned to their own habitat. The other animals were also interesting and our guide explained the work that goes into caring for them. Highly recommended!

Welcome to the Tirimbina Rainforest Center, where education, research and beauty combine to offer you an unforgettable experience with nature. Tirimbina is an educational, scientific and ecotourism destination, located between the Forests and rivers of the northern region of Costa Rica. Tirimbina offers education programs for primary schools, high schools and university students, as well as facilities for study groups, volunteers and researchers, highlighting the biodiversity and conservation of the rainforest. Tirimbina’s abundant forest provides great ecotourism activities. Come and explore the trails, discover its flora and fauna, walk on the suspension Bridges or discover the secrets of cacao during the popular Chocolate Tour. Visit us and learn about the rainforest.
We booked a night walk hoping to see a sloth in motion and maybe an armadillo. No luck. We saw a mouse, a lizard, several frogs and toads, lots of insects, a couple of leeches, some sleeping birds, and a tarantula. My favorite was the bullet ants. They are really big.
I don't blame the guide for not finding what we were after - she could only find what was there to see. But it was rather a disappointing way to spend nearly 3 hours.

El mejor lugar para ver vida silvestre tanto como aves, ranas y algunos mamiferos! Especial para familias!!! Precio especial si vienen de parte de trip advisor!
We can highly recommend Jose’s tour of his property. On the tour you will see birds, sloths and frogs and will learn how they all relate to the plants in their environment. But more important - you will learn Jose’s story and his family’s story of the property- jose has done an amazing job of creating a small wildlife corridor on his property. His family were farmers but due to economic conditions and jose’s biology degree have been able to create a small eco paradise. When you pay your $25 - you know it is not going to a large eco tourism corporation. Instead you are helping a Costa Rican family live their dream.

We visited this charming place on a very rainy day in February. The owner of the farm took us on a tour, after serving us with delicious pineapple juice and coffee and although he did not speak English we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We saw lots of Costa Rican wildlife, including Iguanas and frogs, and even fed the Tilapia fish in the ponds. We were given our very own pineapple to take back to the hotel and at the end we enjoyed the juice of fresh sugar cane and ginger, which was delicious. A lovely afternoon out, even in the heavy tropical rain!

I'm somewhat biased as I live in this area however, for those looking for a great weekend drive or stunning night time vistas of the city below, you cannot beat it. If you look carefully you'll find some quiet bars and restaurants hidden in the region, great off the beaten path roads to explore and beautiful nature all around.

This narrow river offers white-water rafting that's enjoyable at every level.
we took a cruise with Sarapiqui river cruise, which went up river into the nature preserve. I think we were short a guide, but the driver pointed out monkeys, a lot of birds and a couple of lizards including the "Jesus lizard". Definitely recommended.
