These animals are caged for the profit of the owners. This is NOT a rescue center, it is a zoo tto suck money out of people using cute slothhs. Made me SAD

Great tour to see lots of resident animals and learn the facts about wildlife preservation. Guides were very knowledgeable and interactive with the group. Inspiring to get on the save the planet train!

I reached out to KSTR more than three months before our trip to make a reservation. I expected that the tour size would be limited, but I was quite wrong. The number that showed up that day was so large they had to split us in two, and we had 11 in our part of the tour. I'm not sure how many the other group had. The tour is not much more than a very small zoo, with caged animals that can't be returned to the wild due to whatever their individual circumstances. We expected to see the "hospital" portion of the facility, but that wasn't included. We couldn't even look in the windows to see animals being treated. Our guide, while a very nice young man, did not know much about the animals aside from a few basic facts that can be learned online. When asked more detailed questions about why a certain animal was at the facility, he did not have the answers. He had been on the property for more than two months, and should have known more about individual circumstances for each animal. The cost is $55 per adult, and we provided our own transportation. The tour lasted about an hour, which was not at all worth the cost. After, we were offered light refreshments (fresh pineapple, juice and small packages of Oreo cookies). Bottom line, save your money and just go to Manuel Antonio to see the animals there.

KTSR is truly doing great work. Go in the morning as it is hot there. It is a great way to see animals up close that you may not normally see up close. Our guide, an intern, did a great job explaining what they do and really helped us realize the importance of not interacting with animals. Chip is definitely amusing too!
