Adventures in Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Excursions: Guanacaste is less tropical, humid and lush than the rest of the country. Its plains and dry forests sometimes remind African savanna landscapes. Inland you can see the savanna, local cowboys on their horses while driving their flocks, which are authentic figures of popular culture of this destination. From the hotel, you can do several excursions that you can not lose, like the visit of the National Park Rincon de la Vieja, the Safari Park or the capital of Guanacaste: Liberia. The prices will be determined by the local tour operator and posted shortly.

Discover the #1 Animal Sanctuary in 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 Costa Rica wildlife sanctuary 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 Guanacaste wildlife sanctuary!
