Diamante Eco Adventure Park is a forever home to many species of animals. As an animal sanctuary, we strive to keep our wildlife family safe and in the best habitats. Adaptation is one of the most crucial aspects of their life here. Therefore each species habitat is design to replicate their natural environment and promote natural behaviors. You will rarely see an animal by its own, unless it is a trait character. The only animal to break this rule is Sam our keel billed toucan. This is Sam’s story:

Diamante Park Tips – Animal Sanctuary 101

Diamante’s Animal Sanctuary is home to the largest variety of species in one location. It is also the largest animal sanctuary in Guanacaste. It was built in partnership with La Paz Waterfall Gardens. There are many ways to experience wildlife in Costa Rica. Many will venture to national parks and try to spot the animals out in the wild. This can be a hard task as many animals tend to be nocturnal. So getting to see animals up close in nature is a grueling task to accomplish. But if you are looking to get an up close view we encourage you to visit our animal sanctuary. All of our animals have been rescued and donated by the Wildlife Ministry of Costa Rica. We have created a fun, educational and enriching experience for wildlife seekers.

If you are an animal lover and want to get the best experience from this gorgeous world-class five star habitat for rescue wildlife here are some tips to make it unforgettable:

Hours of operation

Diamante Eco Adventure Park opens every day at 8:30 am and closes at 4:30 pm. To get to the animal sanctuary, it is first necessary to check-in at the Welcome Center. Our staff will give you a brief explanation of the sanctuary, what activities are going on, how to get the shuttle and more useful information.  The only way to get down to the Animal Sanctuary is with our transportation. The shuttle runs every 10 to 15 minutes from the welcome center down to the Animal Sanctuary. You can always come back to the Welcome Center for lunch or to browse the gift shop and then go down again to the Sanctuary. As long as we are open, the animal sanctuary is too!
