laspumas

Located in Canas, Guanacaste this animal shelter helps to protect numerous types of Costa Rican jungle cats such as panther, puma and ocelot. There are also birds, foxes and the like. These animals were abandoned or injured. Many of the animals are protected species.

There is an excellent restaurant, Rio Corobica, just a few hundred meters from Las Pumas. They also offer scenic raft trips on the Corobica River. We ran across several young boys swimming in the river and joined them. Later we heard that crocodiles inhabited the river.
