“Hang with the howlers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This was a terrific family friendly stop on our trip. Our 9 year old loved the reptiles, especially the open concept terrarium with the eyelash vipers. Our daughter loved the cats and the monkeys, and what a way to experience the monkeys! She was a favorite with them as they loved to climb up her and try to chew her banana colored hair. We loved the sloths clinging to the volunteers and all over the buildings. The best part as a parent and biologist was the attention to the reality of the situation, there are many orphaned animals who are wild, that need medical attention and then to be reintroduced back into the wild.

“A great centre that supports local wildlife”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This center rescues all sort of animals and tries to rehabilitate them to the point where they can be returned to the wild. Great staff, great purpose, definitely worth supporting. It also gives you a chance to get up close to certain animals like the howler monkeys and snakes. Good educational facility as well.

“fun trip, see lots of animals and support a good cause”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This visit is well worth your time and money. It is a "must do" in Puerto Viejo. Not only do you get to see a lot of beautiful animals but you support the important work they do for rescuing animals who would have died without them. They all work for free, so bring a little tip for the guides.
