Make your way to the Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste during opening hours, and present your voucher for a discovery pass to the animal sanctuary. Built in partnership with the renowned La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Diamante’s sanctuary is one of the world’s most diverse collections of species, all rescued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Wildlife (MINAE). Together with La Paz, the park works to combat the illegal capture and trade of wildlife and releases offspring of sanctuary animals into protected areas of Costa Rica.
At your leisure, explore the diverse animal habitats of the park, all designed to provide a natural habitat while allowing guests to observe and learn about these amazing creatures. See the wildly popular two- and three-toed sloths, watch monkeys swinging about in a spacious enclosure, and admire the power and beauty of jungle cats like pumas and jaguars.
Take a look at Costa Rica’s cold-blooded critters at a reptile exhibit featuring more than 30 species of lizards, frogs, geckos, and snakes — even poisonous varieties! Marvel at the power of the spectacular Crocodiles acutus, which can grow up to 16 feet (5 meters) long.
Watch Costa Rica's winged wonders at the hummingbird garden and world-class butterfly conservatory, featuring more than 6,000 square feet (1,830 square meters) and hundreds of delicate species. Finally, go bird watching without the binoculars and spot colorful, exotic birds like scarlet macaws, toucans, tanagers, and grosbeaks flying freely around the bird sanctuary.
