Virtual Costa Rica: A walk on the wild side

Ok: this is a cool one. I mean, they all are. But you know, this one’s got monkeys.

You can now purchase a ticket for a 13-minute virtual tour of Sibú Wildlife Sanctuary in Nosara, on Costa Rica’s northwestern coast. As someone who has had the good fortune to take a tour of Sibú in person, I can tell you you’re in for a treat. It’s a place where wild animals in dire need of care roam in comfort in an ethereal setting, safely observed by lucky humans who stroll through breezy structures that feel like giant treehouses set into the side of a hill. It’s truly a place I’ll never forget.

Now you can view it in a short format perfect for your next coffee break, or your next “OMG my kid needs to see something truly amazing NOW or we are all going to lose our minds” moment. Your ticket will support the refuge’s continuing work with animals, which, like so many nonprofits’ work around Costa Rica and the world, is at risk because of the lost income from cancelled tours. And you can choose from a wide range of tour times.

Join me in buying a Sibú ticket at their Amigos of Costa Rica fundraising page! And join me tomorrow for a little Daily Boost Live over coffee at 8 am CR time/10 am EST.
