Right in front of Puerto Jimenez, on the other side of the Dulce gulf, you'll reach after a 30 minutes boat ride a little sanctuary of locals animals. They are rescued and cared for at the always growing habitation, that was at first only a retreat for a couple in need of respite. But after allowing an ara macaw couple to nest in their library, there was no stoping them in what they will do to help out surrounding wildlife... And they now house all kind of monkeys, sloths, anteater, cats, birds and parrots. They are held in cage or on leash or they roamon free, depending on what's best for them at that time. I loved coming up close to them, sometimes even petting them, and learning about them with our volonteer guide.
The tour is free, but they appreciate any donations you can offer them.
