I’ve been to Costa Rica three times. This is my first time in the area of Puerto Viejo and this time I brought my kids, ages 13 and 15. We went on the 9:30 tour and saw monkeys, sloths, BABY monkeys and sloths, a jaguar,...More
Many thanks to Sarah for an inspiring tour around the centre, sharing so much about the animals and their back stories. The work that so many volunteers do with a real passion for helping these animals on their journey back into the wild is really...More
Had a wonderful & very educative trip to the jaguar rescue center. Sarah was our guide and she was so knowledgeable and fun! A lot of interesting fun facts and cool back stories as to how these animals got here! 10/10 would highly recommend
Our tour leader was Sarah(Blonde English-American) and she was spectacular. So so so knowledgeable about every and all animals!! She was very accommodating to us and how long we wanted to stay at each site. Heaps of stories about the wildlife. This is NOT a...More
Excellent trip. As a group of 4, none of us like to see animals caged or used for
Human entertainment but this is a sanctuary which aims to either rehabilitate sick or injured animals and re release them
Back into their natural habitat and if...More
My buddy and I did the normal tour during our stay in Puerto Viejo. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered everyone’s questions. Got to see some interesting animals and learned a lot about the local animals and how they end up at the...More

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

Hello! My husband and I, along with some friends are planning to visit Costa Rica. I originally wanted to stay in Cahuita because it looks very pretty and we want to visit the sloth sanctuary. I also want to visit the Foundation Jaguar Rescue Center. Other than those 2 places, we would like to stay somewhere that is within walking distance to restaurants and the beach. We just want to be able to relax and have the ease of going into town at our leisure. While researching for this trip, I...More

I don't know which threads you have been reading but if you read recent posts, you should be reassured that the crime situation in the south Caribbean is far better than it used to be and is no more dangerous than anywhere else in the country and a lot safer than many places I have lived in and visited, including my own country (UK). Do use common sense as you would anywhere and consider staying anywhere around Cahuita or Puerto Viejo to be within walking distance (or bike?) of it all.
