Jaguar Rescue Center

Rescue Center in Playa Chiquita

Jaguar Rescue Center

Built around Encar and Sandro’s home, the Jaguar Rescue Center is located in Playa Chiquita, 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 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

Release Point La Ceiba

3 miles away from the Jaguar Rescue Center in the heart of the primary forest of the Caribbean, La Ceiba Natural Reserve 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 many of the animals being reintroduced to their natural habitat after their stay at the JRC.
