Embark on a walk through the property and view the animals that are being cared for here, such as sloths, iguanas, monkeys and deer. The area is vast about ten acres where you will find a wide variety of plant groups such as palms, heliconias,, bromeliads and aroids, many of them indigenous to the Talamanca region. Different species are also grown in the botanical garden, including vanilla, black pepper and cinnamon, as well as tropical fruit trees producing papaya, banana, cocoa and pineapple. You will also be able to find the so-called miracle fruit and discover why it is miraculous!!

Very knowledgeable, very organized and cost of tour goes towards the animals & center. You get up close and personal with the animals, you learn about many Costa Rician plants also. Besides animals it’s a biological garden!

we loved our visit to Tree of life. The woman who runs it is fascinating to listen to and passionate about the rescue centre which aims to reintroduce rescued animals back into their environment. The plants and trees are all really interesting and it was good to hear of their uses. A wonderful way of spending a morning in the area - not to be missed

Loved Patricia’s enthusiasm and education/stories about the rescued animals. The place is beautiful to walk through with a ton of different plants and animals (in spacious enclosures). Love what they’re doing here and the cause! It was awesome to see the animals up close and personal! Similar feel to a small zoo but it felt good knowing the animals there were rescued or injured.

This was an interesting place, with a variety of stories to tell about their rescue animals. What you'll see depends on what animals they have in residency at the time. Would have liked a little more botanical gardens exploration. Time was limited, and would have liked to wander a bit more.
