LOCATION

The Rescue Center is located on a 100-acre farm in Tilaran, Costa Rica. The farm sits at the base of the Tenorio Volcano and Miravalles Protected Zone and borders Lake Arenal, the largest inland body of water in Costa Rica measuring 48 mi² (124 km²), and a very popular attraction for windsurfers.

Tilaran is part of the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica, and is a major farming zone for coffee, peanuts and macadamia nuts in the region as well as for cattle and horse ranching. It sits at 1,640 ft (500 m) above sea level, the temperature stays around a comfortable 75ºF (24ºC).

Accessing the Rescue Center from anywhere is a beautiful and scenic drive. Costa Rica has two international airports within a few hours drive from the farm. From Juan Santamaría International Airport in San Jose, the Pan-American Hwy leads you 107 miles (172 km) to the town of Cañas. From Cañas, it is a 14 mile (22 km) ride to Tilarán along a beautiful stretch of flat highway. From Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, head south along the Pan-American Hwy 29 miles (47 km) to Cañas and follow the signs to Tilaran and you will arrive at the farm in a little over 1 hour.

The area of Costa Rica where the farm is located has become a hot zone for renewable energy. Many of the largest hydroelectric plants and wind farms in the country are located right outside the property and have become a major destination for tourists from around the world.

The fact that renewable energies are so prevalent in this area was one the biggest reasons the location of the farm was chosen to be home of the Rescue Center.
