We had a chance to visit in July, and you're right colinsito, its well worth it.

Encar truly loves each and every animal and it shows. It was the highlight of our time in Puerto Viejo and a real learning experience for our entire family.

We just visited last week, it was one of the highlights of our trip. It is somewhat hard to see the sign from the road (for those looking for it, the center is on the right just before Miss Holly's restaurant if you are heading to Cocles from PV).

They had several young howler monkeys, a toucan, a baby sloth and grown sloth, and a margay. There are also several types of snakes. Of course, the residents can change based upon what is rescued at the time of your visit.

The owners and employees are clearly concerned with the care and well being of the animals. It is well worth the time and donation. Plus, where else can you be photographed with a monkey wrapped around your neck?!
