An excellent tour of a lovely facility that evidently cares and respects the animals they shelter and release. The tour was very well delivered, educational and entertaining. Glad we visited.

The Jaguar Rescue Center was a great experience! We did a private tour, which allowed us to learn so much about the animal residents and Costa Rica’s diverse wildlife. The entire staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely check this place out!

Yes, there are a few places to sit— but the property isn’t huge and the walk is slow.
