Jaguar Rescue Center
With civilization encroaching into the jungle, there is a real need for animal conservation. Located in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, the Jaguar Rescue Center is one of the best places to learn more about wildlife and see some of the most elusive animals that roam Costa Rica’s jungles. The center is a temporary or a permanent home for ill, injured or orphaned animals. Then, the animals are rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Every time you go to the center, you will get a new experience. You may get to see a rare, black jaguar that broke its leg or a baby sloth that got lost from its mother or even a blind anteater. The rescue center provides guided tours. Feel free to ask as many questions as you want because the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly.
