          No jaguars

          A travel blog entry by madkath on Aug 11, 2015

          ... for civilisation. These are the only cats at the centre - no jaguars despite the name! We are shown a very small baby sloth in a small pen, so small he has to have heat lights on him. Lots of snakes, eyelash pit vipers, a large false coral snake and the onto the sloth garden. 3 sloths just hanging around, they are soooo adorable. We enjoy the tour so much we decide to support the work of the centre even more by booking a night tour. I'm seriously craving pizza, on the ride back we ...

          ... I was warned could happen, although the price has shot up from $50 to $150. I played the Ignorant Gringo card as hard as I could, "explaining" that the 72hours actually applied to the time I came into Panama via San Blas before I was stamped in on my last day there. He wasn't having any of it.

          Plan B was to just cross the bridge into Costa Rica and not bother getting an exit stamp at all. What's the worst that can happen? I ...

We stop in at the Jaguar rescue centre to suss it out but it's not,open and was $18 each for a tour abut how they rescued certain wildlife. A mate we had met along the way also mentioned they have no jaguars too so we kick along back towards home and weave our way through the ...

          ... the jaguar rehabilitation centre. This is a centre for injured animals, ones that have been inappropriately kept as pets, or for those whose mother may have been killed. They aim to look after the animals until they are old enough to be reintroduced back into the wild. And they had so much! A really cute baby ocelot! Like a mini leopard, but totally cat sized as it was only 2 months old! I barely noticed the little baby sloth hanging in the tree. He was ...

          Today we woke up earlyish to go into town and watch the England vs Costa Rica match in a sports bar. It was such a great atmosphere despite being a terrible match, as Costa Rica qualified as first in their group to go through to the next round. It was a lot of fun, they cheer pretty much all the time. We then grabbed a few bits and some lunch in town before heading back to Rocking J's and chilling in the ...
