We saw white tailed deer, spider monkeys, howler monkeys (including babies), sloths (including babies!), ant-eaters, toucans, a caiman lizard, an American...More

My family and I recently went on this tour. There weren't jaguars and you can't hold the animals, so if that is what you are expecting, this isn't the tour for you (it isn't a zoo)! We had a fabulous guide and the stories of...More

This is the tour you want if you love animals and it’s important to you that they are released back into wild whenever possible.

The Jaguar Rescue Center is doing a good job to protect injured wildlife while educating visitors in a enjoyable manner. The wildlife seemed to thrive and the volunteers where well informed and enjoyed their work with these beautiful animals. I recommend people visit this center.

We only took the public tour. They make an effort to keep groups to 10 people, and try to accommodate various languages. I don’t know how much more in-depth a private tour would be. We thought the public one, at $20/person... More
