Visit a wildlife rescue center, which is rehabilitating jaguars, monkeys, and many other rainforest species. An indigenous family will teach you how to turn cacao into chocolate. Hike through the jungle to a 40 foot (12 meter) waterfall.
You begin your day visiting a jaguar rescue center, which is also home to other rescued species, including:
At the center, you will also have a chance to observe many of Costa Rica’s venomous snakes in terrariums which imitate their natural habitats.
After the center, you will visit an indigenous family who grow cacao trees on their land. They will show you the process that turns raw cacao into chocolate and you will have an opportunity to try some! Please note that most of the family does not speak English, so they may pantomime much of the explanation!
Next, your guide will take you on a 20 minute hike through the mountain jungle of Talamanca, to a 40 foot (12 meter) waterfall, where you can swim if you would like. We advise you to wear shoes that can get wet, as you will be walking on a lot of wet ground near the falls. A change of clothes is also advisable if you plan to swim.
