I have been to the rescue center last year and it slipped my mind to review it. Today, I went to a zoo, and it made think back and remember how awesome this Rescue Center really is. All the animals you will find there, are rescued, brought back to health, and later reintroduced to the wild. They all looked happy.

In the zoo today, all the animals looked sad. I guess, a recovery center is much better than a prison for life. Definitely go to this rescue center, it is the real deal and you can even interact with certain animals. Playing with baby monkeys was definitely a majour highlight of my stay in Costa Rica.

I got to do my tour with one of the founders of this place and it was absolutely amazing. We saw an amazing collection of some very rare and common snakes from the area. Te people behind the scenes are really about the prosperity of the animals they keep and are doing everything they can to return the returnable being back into the wild. You get to pet monkeys, maybe hod it if the monkeys wants you too. Pet deer for sure. See owls up close. I have always wanted to see one so close and i truly enjoyed the experience there..

I was enthralled with the knowledge of our guide. The animals were amazing as I had seen most of them from a distance in our backyard, being up close to them put a special meaning behind it for me.

Our guide was informative, gracious, and well educated. You get to see many animals up close, and we even got to play with the monkeys. I highly recommend for everyone of all ages.

The jaguar rescue was a great time. The volunteers were very informed and did a great job showing the animals off. Definitely a perfect place for kids!
