Join this exclusive tour offering access to the Jaguar Rescue Center Foundation in the town of Puerto Viejo. This is the number one attraction in the south of Costa Rica. It is where the famed promotional Save the Americans video was filmed for Costa Rica’s Tourism Board. Never before have cruise guests had an all-access pass to the most amazing fauna conservation effort in the country.

This is your chance to interact with all the local wildlife imaginable -- toucans, hawks, monkeys, sloths, tamanduas, anteaters, deer, and parrots. These are just a few of the animals in this magical location. The foundation works endlessly to rehabilitate all of these animals and return them to good health so they can later be released back into the wild.

You will also visit La Ceiba -- a private reserve that is adjacent to, and works hand-in-hand with, the Jaguar Rescue Center. The most endangered animals are rehabilitated here for released back into the wild.

Take a nature walk in this lush rain forest environment and catch a glimpse of the volunteers working with the animals, teaching them the skills they need to fend for themselves in the wild.

Finally, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch in the middle of this pristine refuge.
