I appreciated this tour for the educational aspect as well as seeing the animals in the sanctuary. We learned alot about the primates, sloths and birds. It does involve walking in the heat and humidity, so be prepared.

Wonderful place for animals who mostly cannot be released into the wild because of injury or whatever---toucans, monkeys and more in a well done walking tour---they have a nice pool to cool off in afterwards.
