Our daily tour at the Jaguar Rescue Center is unlike any animal experience you’ve had before. Our world-class tour will bring you in close proximity with monkeys, wild cats, sloths, anteaters and more. You’ll see monkeys in the trees, birds flying free, and the most venomous snakes in Costa Rica, housed in terrariums imitating their natural habitat. Guided by professionals who have extensive training with our animals, you will see things you wouldn’t even have known to look for, and learn things you could never imagine.
