Departure Point

350 east RIU Hotel, Playa Matapalo, Provincia de Guanacaste, Playa Matapalo, 50503, Costa Rica

Diamante’s Animal Sanctuary is one of the finest wildlife education centers in Costa Rica. Lush gardens surround the shaded walking trails and offer guests the opportunity to explore the rich biodiversity of Costa Rica. Diamante is home to a large variety of Costa Rican animals that are in need. Some of the animals in our care have been born in other wildlife management programs for scientific and educational purposes; others are rescued and placed in our management by the authorities of Costa Rica. These animals are not fit for life in the natural environment and are cared for by a large team of qualified and dedicated professionals. Our Animal sanctuary in Costa Rica is known for its world-class habitat designs that address the needs of each species. The unique design of the habitats allows guests to view and learn about key aspects of biology, ecology and natural history of the animals. Diamante’s bilingual team is known for excellent customer service and focus on education and raising awareness among visitors and locals about the importance of respect and the protection of wildlife. Diamante works directly with a body of professionals in biology and veterinary medicine and with technical and legal supervision by officials of the SINAC, which is the government entity in charge of the country’s wildlife. If you’ve ever wanted to visit a sloth sanctuary, or view exotic animals up close, you can’t miss a visit to our incredible Costa Rica wildlife sanctuary!

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste during opening hours, and present your voucher for a discovery pass to the animal sanctuary. Built in partnership with the renowned La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Diamante’s sanctuary is one of the world’s most diverse collections of species, all rescued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Wildlife (MINAE). Together with La Paz, the park works to combat the illegal capture and trade of wildlife and releases offspring of sanctuary animals into protected areas of Costa Rica.

At your leisure, explore the diverse animal habitats of the park, all designed to provide a natural habitat while allowing guests to observe and learn about these amazing creatures. See the wildly popular two- and three-toed sloths, watch monkeys swinging about in a spacious enclosure, and admire the power and beauty of jungle cats like pumas and jaguars.

Take a look at Costa Rica’s cold-blooded critters at a reptile exhibit featuring more than 30 species of lizards, frogs, geckos, and snakes — even poisonous varieties! Marvel at the power of the spectacular Crocodiles acutus, which can grow up to 16 feet (5 meters) long.

Watch Costa Rica's winged wonders at the hummingbird garden and world-class butterfly conservatory, featuring more than 6,000 square feet (1,830 square meters) and hundreds of delicate species. Finally, go bird watching without the binoculars and spot colorful, exotic birds like scarlet macaws, toucans, tanagers, and grosbeaks flying freely around the bird sanctuary.

You get to know the different kinds of wild animals that live in the Costa Rican jungles. From Hauler monkeys, white face monkeys, iguannas, pumas, acelots, jaguars, crocodiles, and more. While you are there, don't forget to do the Superman Zipline, It is 80 stories high, and 1.4 kilometers long, taking between 45 seconds to 1 minute and a half from Point A to Point B. This makes it a must do Costa Rica tour!!

This was a nice tour but it was more of a zoo and was expecting something a little different. But saying that all the enclosers was very clean and they have done a remarkable job to create a natural environment for the the animals. You could go into the butterfly observatory and the tucans. It was an enjoyable day, all the staff is very pleasant and helpful. Have your travel rep. contact them to arrange pickup and drop off, regular taxi was charging 65.00 one way, People from the park charged 75.00 return trip. Not a big park does not take long to see all.
