Stay dogs and cats are a problem in most Central American cities, due to the lack of animal control agencies ad low-cost spay and neuter programs. In San Juan del Sur, forget low-cost – the Piedras y Olas Hotel’s Stones & Waves Veterinary Clinic and Wildlife Center spays and neuters the pets of San Juan del Sur’s native residents for free.

If you don’t care for animals, Piedras y Olas isn’t the hotel for you. Cats and dogs roam freely over the expansive hotel grounds, each of them fixed, well-fed, and up to date on shots (a rare thing in Nicaragua).

Often, you’ll pull out a chair at the resort’s downstairs restaurant only to discover a calico kitten has taken your seat.

Cats and dogs aren’t the only lucky creatures nurtured by the Stones & Waves Veterinary Clinic and Wildlife Center. It also manages a successful wildlife rehabilitation program, aiding monkeys who have been ill-treated, as well as geese, raccoons, coatimundis, and a peccary, or small pig. A number of Stones & Waves animals roost at the zoo on the resort’s grounds, including the peccary – according to Cornwell, the peccary follows Berry around like a lap dog!

Stay tuned for a photo gallery of San Juan del Sur wildlife by the Piedras y Olas Hotel’s resident photographer, Cesar Paniamogan, Jr. (www.dancesar.com).
