The Jaguar Rescue Center is a great place that has become a place for so many injured animals from the area. There are no jaguars here as the one it was named for passed long ago. But there are many sloths (including babies), monkeys (including babies), a toucan, several deer, and there is one big cat with a funny story. She was released but came back to the JRC because she loved it so.

There are a couple of deer roaming around and one actually licks people, as well as a peccary (wild pig).

We took the first tour of the day and got to see the sloths feeding, so I would definitely recommend doing the 9:30 if you'd like to see them moving around.

We went to the first tour of the day, 9:30am and it did not disappoint! Despite being very busy, they divided the crowd up by language and then divided even more so there were groups of about 15 in each tour. Becky was our guide and she was amazing! I really appreciated her passion and knowledge! We learned so much about the unique creatures of Costa Rica! Definitely worth the trip :) the whole place is non profit, even the tour guides are just volunteers. It was clear they really prioritize the welfare of their animals. Each animal had its own story as well, of which Becky was an expert! Go take a tour and ask for Becky, you won’t regret it!

There aren’t any jaguars but that doesn’t matter. There is so much else to see. The numerous monkeys, sloths, raccoons, ocelot, plus birds and reptiles including an American alligator, caymans and turtles to name a few. We had a fantastic tour by Astrid and learnt a lot. It so worth the $20 (donation) each to help run such a worthwhile cause. Great few hours..... thank you, keep up the good work!

There is so much information about the JRC online that a review is not really necessary. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the amazing work that you are doing. We will be back soon with the whole family and will definitely be back to see and learn more. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

We went there with our 5-year old son, he was really excited seeing all the jungle animals so close. We had great guide Sarah from UK, telling really interesting stories about habitats off animals leaving in Costa Rica jungle. Worth to visit and donate, people are doing great work for the animals!
