“The Jaguar Rescue Center was AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Seeing the love and care given to all of the animals who have been hurt or orphaned filled your heart with joy. The work they put into helping get the animals back out into the wild was remarkable. And the animals that are not able to go back to the wild that are able to live their lives in this safe and wonderful environment brings tears to your eyes. So awesome.

“Go Here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Amazing place with amazing people. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Volunteer if you get the chance you get so much more hands-on time with the animals. Would recommend this 100%. You get first hand experience with many of Costa Rica's native species. It's awesome

“My favorite place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

I didn't know what to expect going here. We had about 14 people in our group and an amazing volunteer that was very knowledgeable of all the animals. I was very happy to hear that their main goal is to release the animals back into the wild. I was a little disappointed we didn't get to spend a lot of time with the monkeys. But now knowing they do private tours, I will def be back on my next trip to Costa Rica! Great place! Great ppl! Beautiful animals! If I lived there I would volunteer everyday!!

“Amazing place with very compassionate volunteers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

I really recommend this place. The work those volunteers are doing is just amazing. They are taking care of so many different species of animals. From frogs, to monkeys, sloths but also highly poisonous snakes.

Don't forget to leave a tip, as the resort is ran solely on funds.

“Enjoyable with great volunteers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

We had a fun time getting to see some animals and briefly interacting with monkeys. We were impressed by the volunteers' commitment. Seems like a great cause to donate money to, we were happy we went.
