A MUST!!! Our guide Carlos was absolutely wonderful. We learned a lot about the animals and truly enjoined feeding them. One of the most memorable experiences of our trip.

The tour was awesome the guide was funny and talked about each animal in detail. The best part was after the tour we prepared the animals food then fed them it was really fun.

This was one of the best experiences of my entire trip to Costa Rica. The guide, Carlos, was very passionate and knowledgeable. It felt wonderful knowing that the majority of the animals we were feeding and helping and learning about were being returned to the wild. Would just agree with other posters that you should definitely bring bug spray and make sure it's powerful- I used some and still got bitten quite badly on my legs. It was still worth it though- would gladly go again.

This was definitely one of the coolest things we did in CR! We got to be a small part of rehabilitating these wounded and special animals. The tour guide was a wealth of information and taught us so much about Costa Rican wildlife. We would definitely do this again! High four like a spider monkey!!!

Incredible tour and experience, largely because of the tour guide Carlos. Probably a 4-star without him - he earns a star himself just for the energy and passion he brings. Our kids loved his stories and true love for the animals and cause. Don't miss out on the extra option to feed animals - it's worth the money and then some. This is probably worth a trip to the La Fortuna area on its own. Go.

Definately one of the highlights of our trip, and we were there for 2 weeks. Carlos was great, very educational for us and our children. Highly recommended!
