  • Beautiful décor, just outside Cahuita, located on the road to the sea. The garden is very lush and offers a beautiful insight into the colorful flora of CR. There are some animal enclosures with previously injured or pet-held wild animals (Jaguarundi, Parrots, Coatis, Sloths, etc.). The tour is in English and very informative. Here, too, the preservation of this establishment is supported by entrance fees and the purchase of homemade chocolate. I don't know if the animals will ever be reintroduced. Since our children love animals, we visited the Tree of Life. But in the wild we had also seen almost all the animals already—perhaps not quite so close up."
