Located 3-4 hours east of Santa Cruz, San Miguelito Jaguar Conservation Ranch offers birdwatching with a variety of other experiences mixed in. A working cattle ranch where proceeds from tourism offset cattle losses due to jaguar predation in the vicinity and encourage habitat conservation, this private initiative shows that positive results come from careful management. A safari-type experience includes any combination of hikes, canoe trips, horseback riding, driving tours, and observation from viewing platforms.
Lodging is offered in the ranch house with capacity for 10 people. All meals are included and personal preferences are accomodated. Tour package includes transportation to and from Santa Cruz. Reservations are required.
