Slothy Sunday: Restrictions are lifted, now what? See sloths, what else!

March 7, 2021

This is officially the first week we are all allowed to drive again on both days of the weekend, how exciting is that!? It has been slow, but we are finally going back to normal. Costa Rica followed the right procedures to stop the Covid-19 spread.

Now that restrictions have been lifted for the weekend, we are all pretty excited to explore Costa Rica again! And for all of you wildlife lovers, we have the perfect weekend plan.

VISIT THE TOUCAN RESCUE RANCH!

As you may or may not know, the Toucan Rescue Ranch is not only a rescue center for all wildlife but a sanctuary open to the public! From Tuesday to Sunday, you can visit us and get to experience Costa Rican wildlife up-close, just a quick drive from San José.

Our sanctuary offers you a unique experience to meet rescued animals, learn their individual stories and the importance of wildlife conservation. You will join a knowledgeable biologist, who will answer any questions you may have about cute sloths! Most importantly, all your donations contribute to all our conservation programs, so we can keep doing the work we do and save as many animals as possible!

With this experience, you can see not only beautiful sloths but macaws, parrots, toucans, otters, tayras, monkeys, and much more!

You'll be surprised to know that Toucan Rescue Ranch has rescued toucans.
