This is the world’s first area devoted to the protection of the jaguar, the largest cat found in the Americas. There’s a small, but effective education center at the preserve, but most of the experience is simply hiking the miles of trails. If you really want to see a jaguar, plan to spend the night here in some of the rustic lodging available to guests. Although actual sightings of jaguar are rare, youÃ¢€™ll hear and maybe see lots of the jungle activity in which the jaguar thrives. You can also rent inner tubes for quick float along the river.
