    Adventure off the traditional path to the spectacular ¨ Llanos de Cortez Waterfall¨. This secluded waterfall spans 30ft high and 40 ft wide and cascades into a white sand pond.   Enjoy swimming, hiking or just relaxing. Surrunding by nature area when you can swimming safe by areas. 


    We will get you as close to the water fall as we can, however, access is ultimately by foot and participants need to be able to walk down to and up from the base of the waterfall.  The walk is just 600 ft. If you have any physical limitations please discuss this with us prior to booking. 


    Costa Rica is famous for the enormous and diversified number of animals within its surprisingly-small land area. This facility Rescue Center has six species of cats. Is saves and raises ocelots, jaguars, cougars, margays, jaguarundis and tiger cats. Most of the cats in this facility have been rescued from injury or were oephanaed.

    The shelter today generally has around 80 to 100 individual animals under its care, many of which are endangered species. The shelter specializes in protecting wild cats that are close to extinction due to the disappearance of their natural habitat.

    Here the visitor can photograph the normally-elusive jaguar and five other species of native Costa Rican felines: puma (also known as cougar and mountain lion, depending on where it is found), ocelot, jaguarundi, oncilla and margay.

    You can watch as they interact with the animals, cleaning their areas, feeding them and sometimes just talking with them. The atmosphere is informal and friendly, yet professional.

    Other species of mammals and birds finding shelter at Las Pumas include the gray fox, coatimundi, white-faced monkey, white-tailed deer, paca, the keel-billed toucan, orange-fronted parakeet, red-lored parrot, scarlet macaw and others.
