Start your day off with an educational tour of the Jaguar Rescue Center. Named for the spirit of an orphaned baby jaguar who sadly passed away, the Jaguar Rescue Center is a safe haven for many different species including monkeys, sloths, wild cats, snakes, lizards, frogs, and toucans. The goal of this Jaguar Rescue Center is rehabilitation and release. The expert guides will explain their philosophies for rescuing and nurturing these amazing animals back to health for release to their partners at the La Ceiba nature preserve where they can continue to thrive in a protected environment.
Afterward you will be transported further down the Carribean coast to Punta Uva (Grape Point) Beach. Here you will receive detailed kayaking safety instructions before launching out into the sea! The clarity of the Caribbean waters will allow you to see many tropical fish and coral reef as you kayak Punta Uva bay. Next, our kayak tour takes you up the river for to spot freshwater turtles, various wetland loving birds, and maybe even a crocodile! Don't forget to look out for the resident sloths and howler monkeys are hanging in the treetops.
No eco-tour would be complete without a walk through the rainforest. First, we will refresh and refuel with a healthy fruit snack and relax on the beach.before setting out to hike Punta Uva for a breath-taking view of the horseshoe shaped bay. Afterwards take a break before our transportation returns you back to your Puerto Viejo or Cahuita hotel.
