Animal Rescue Center

Need a break from the beach and looking for a great day activity? Try the Jaguar Rescue Center in Peurto Veijo Costa Rica. Although it is called Jaguar RC, it is a complete animal rescue center and simply named after the first animal they took it. The cost is 17$ and helps to fund this non-profit center. This includes either an english or spanish tour where can see animals like slothers, snakes, caymen, monkeys and more. Tours are at 9:30 and 11:30 am. Interactions are available with the monkeys, making great photo opportunities. The center is south of the main town and is about an hour walk. Try renting bikes for the day and then can stop in during your bike excursions.

Hostel in Puerto Viejo

The most popular hostel in Puerto Viejo is Rockin J's. They have tons of hammocks for rent, camping, dorms and private rooms. A great restaurant/bar and is right on the water. Only a shot walk from the beautiful beach south of Puerto Viejo too. From the bus stop, walk away from the direction you came along the main road. It is about 600m from the bus stop.
