Details

Kids Saving The Rainforest (KSTR) was founded by two nine-year-olds in 1999 and has been working hard to save the rainforest of Manuel Antonio and its surrounding areas. KSTR has a MINAET licensed Wildlife Rescue Center and in 2010, KTSR rescued and rehabilitated 116 animals, having already released half of them.  

KSTR has built 130 monkey bridges since 2001 to prevent monkeys and sloths from being hit by cars or electrocuted.  At that time there were only 1200 Titi monkeys (of this sub-species) left in the world. There are now approximately 3500 Titi monkeys in our area! 

Our Special Wildlife Tour is from 9 AM to 11 AM on Mondays, Weds, Fridays and Sundays. The tour is given by the tour guide in the Wildlife Sanctuary and includes a snack at the end of the tour. Bring a towel and bathing suit if you would like to swim in the beautiful swimming pool!

Animals in the Sanctuary:

  • Two toed (fingered) sloths
  • Spider monkeys
  • White Faced Monkeys
  • Squirrel Monkeys
  • Scarlet macaw
  • Toucan
  • Tamarins
  • Marmosets
  • Kinkajous
  • Parrots & Parakeets
  • Coatis
  • Porcupine
  • First ever released Grey capped squirrel monkey troop, that can sometimes be seen 

Suggested Donation: $60 for adults & $45 for children under 12, all proceeds go toward the animals! The person booking the tour needs to take a deposit of $10 per person to confirm the tour. The people taking the tour will give the money to the Tour guide at the end of the tour, either cash or CC (13% tax is added when using a cc).

To book a tour: Email chip@kstr.org or speak to your receptionist/concierge. Please be sure to book 48 hours prior to the tour. Sometimes emails take a while to arrive & we want to make sure we are prepared.  

Transportation is included in the price. Contact chip@kstr.org for more details and to book a tour.
