Take a Tour of the Ranch

Reservations required for all tours. Closed Sundays.


While you are in Costa Rica, the best way to learn about the Toucan Rescue Ranch is to come and take a tour. We are a Costa Rican licensed Wildlife Refuge Center located just 20 minutes from downtown San Jose.

Confirmed reservations required.   Because we are a rescue center, there is no public access except with a tour reservation.

We are closed Sundays.


The tour is rich with the individual stories of the rescued toucans and other birds and animals, including a large variety of parrots, macaws, owls, two-toed and three-toed sloths, kinkajous, a spider monkey, rainforest porcupines, otters, and a hawk named Prince!

Start times: 9am and 2pm    Duration: 2 hours
