9. Visit Las Pumas Animal Sanctuary
Cañas is a good pit stop on your way in/out of the pacific coastal region, Guanacaste. If you have time between destinations, visit Las Pumas animal sanctuary to see some beautiful big cats and other wildlife. "Max" (pictured right) is a leopard who was previously kept as a pet, which means he lacks the survival skills in the wild. It shows becuase he loved humans and craves attention!
