Unfortunately can no longer return the freedom because they often have health problems. Here you can see Jaguars, Pumas and ocelots.

De entree is redelijk, maar het geld gaat wel meteen naar het goede doel, dus je Collones zijn goed besteed.

In this shelter are all sorts of animals or domestic, neglected or eg. be hit. Fun to walk around. The park is not very big and you have no guide that tells what, but everything we read on the signs. If you love animals, you should go here if only to the charity to support.
This is a wonderful place to see some of Costa Rica’s local animals up close. It’s a small park but definitely worth seeing, especially if you have children. There’s not really a cafeteria there so be sure to bring your own cold drinks and eat beforehand/afterwards.
A beautiful place with a great mission of protection and conservation. Please donate if you enjoyed your time!
The website said the cost for us (Students) was $5 but when we showed up we were told it was $8, a bit annoying but it's going to a good cause so it's fine (the website is now updated to the new price, but wasn't when we went). As for the rescue center itself, it's great! Most of the animals had good sized enclosures, and as spectators we were able to see every animal, some were very active like the Puma and Jaguar and would hang out just on the other side of the fence. Sure, it wasn't perfect. Maybe the birds could have a bigger enclosure given how many there were, but they seemed like good people working hard to help these animals. Highly recommend stopping in and helping their cause. Our stop was short, saw everything in 45 minutes. Remember, this is a rescue center, not a zoo. Although you will get to see some cool animals, that's not the main purpose of this place. They are rehabilitating these animals, allowing people to come see them is a way to help pay for their many expenses.
Nice rescue facility. Good place to take kids to see parrots, toucans and large wild cats.
Good to see these animals in a secured Environment. But for ~45 minutes stay it is a bit expensive. Paid 12$ per Person.
