What you’ll do?

Be apart of the conservation and rehabilitation of more than 100 different species of animals, birds, reptiles and insects.  The Caribbean coast is home to many extraordinary rehabilitation and rescue facilities and the huge community of people dedicated to their preservation. 88% of this region is protected under some category of environmental protection and the wildlife is included in that.

At the Jaguar Rescue Centre, you will learn first hand how they are cared for and the actions that have been put into place to protect them. Their primary goal is to rehabilitate animals and reintroduce them back into their native habitats. 

In this experience you will be guaranteed to see sloths, monkeys, snakes, ocelots, toucans and more. We will be visiting the facility in ‘off hours’ to offer a more private experience.

We will also be visiting Ara Manzanillo. This projects represents the first time that the Great Green Macaw will be reintroduced into the wild. You will have the opportunity to explore their natural habitat with your knowledgeable guide and spend the afternoon in awe of their colours and their flight.

By night, we will be taking you on a trek to see the nocturnal creatures and wildlife that you won’t get the chance to see in the day (flashlight required).

Where you’ll be

The Talamanca region of Costa Rica is widely known for its lush rainforest, white sand beaches, its crystal waters, reggae music, and coconut rice and beans. It is also known for its wildlife.
What many aren’t aware of is that 88% of the Caribbean coast is protected under some category of environmental protection and the wildlife is included in that.


Since 2008, The Jaguar Rescue Center has rescued an average of 500 – 700 animals per year and successfully released over 40% of them back into the wild at La Cieba. (contact us if interested in learning more about La Cieba).

In 2010, Ara Manzanillo initiated a Great Green macaw reintroduction project in the South Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. This project represents the first time, that this species will be reintroduced into the wild.
