The Jaguar Rescue Center
Nursery in Cocles Beach
Built around Encar and Sandro’s home, the Jaguar Rescue Center is located in Playa Cocles, about 4 miles from the center of Puerto Viejo. The JRC is the location of the clinic and nursery, where animals are first brought for treatment, rehabilitation and love. It is here where the animals are cared for, and brought back to health so they can be released back to their homes in the jungle.
La Ceiba Primary Forest
Release Site in Punta Uva
3 miles away from the Jaguar Rescue Center, in the heart of the primary forest of the Caribbean is where La Ceiba has been lovingly built and maintained. Encar and Sandro acquired the 49-hectare property several years ago, and it is now used as the release point for animals to be reintroduced to their natural habitat after their stay at the JRC.
