We spent almost 4 hours with our private tour guide. She was so amazing, I cried when we had to leave. We were the last group to finish and we really had the time of our lives. From the animals, to the grounds, this place is fantastic. Although we coudln't take photos of the baby monkeys jumping on us, this... More

It was a nice enough place, however there were no jaguars as we had expected. They were not up front about this very important part of our tour. It was not worth the fee paid. Tory was a good guide and very informative.

Had a tour in December, was really impressed with the variety of animals and the friendliness and knowledge of the tour guides. We learned a lot and really enjoyed the chance to see the animals up close - the sloth garden is not to be missed and was definitely the highlight of the trip for me! Just loved every minute...

My family took a multi generational trip to Costa Rica. Our trip to the Jaguar Rescue Center yesterday was everyone's favorite. Of course the animals were adorable, (yes,even the snakes). It was super cool to get up close and personal with the animals. I also felt my children received a great educational lesson. But, in my opinion what really made... More

I arranged our visit to the centre before we got to Costa Rica. Booking was really easy, but they do ask you to pay the full amount upfront. We opted for the Monkey Package which included a night hike, morning hike and a private tour around the centre. The night trek was the best one we'd done. We saw loads... More

I had read good reviews about this place and was SO happy to have gone here for the day with my family. My wife and two kids (ages 8 & 6) thought this place was incredible. We didn't have to book in advance - just showed up and purchased tickets....the "guide" that took our group of about 12-15 people around... More

This place is just awesome! Guides are so knowledgeable (they are volunteers and paid by your tips, FYI). If you didn't think you saw enough sloths on your trip, take a tour here for sloth cuteness overload. Also some adorable monkeys, although most are gone during the day reacclimating to life in the wild. A wonderful foundation; stop by to... More

My family and I had a great time visiting the rescue centre. Our tour guide was very informative and kind. I was so pleased to hear that animals brought into the rehab are reintroduced into their natural habitat ASAP. It warms my heart to see the people of the rescue centre put their heart and soul into this place <3... More

I have to say that I personally did not attend the visit to the rescue center. My friend took her daughter and my boys. But, after the visit, they all had tons of information to share, including the kids. I was glad to hear that it's really a rescue and not a zoo-type arrangement.
