Great place, great guide. You can tell they're knowledgeable not just about the animals but the myriad laws in Costa Rica governing animal rehabilitation. Be clear when booking that if you do the "Wildlife Rescue Center Tour," you will not see sloths. That's a separate tour, which we found disappointing as we didn't leave enough time to see both.

If you're looking for something different to do in La Fortuna, book the wildlife tour + volunteer combo - you won't regret it. Our guide Carlos was amazing!! He was informative, fun, and his passion for the beautiful animals really shines through. Highlight was preparing food and feeding the animals. If you don't have your own car, taxi from La Fortuna town is about $30 USD one way.

Proyecto Asis is a wonderful organization that rehabilitates and releases local wildlife. Carlos led the wildlife tour. He has been working there for about 10 years and really knows the animals. He was extremely funny and entertaining while also providing an amazing education on each animal and the bad things that people do to them (from owning them as pets, which is highly illegal, to black market trading). If you love animals and want to see local species of toucans, monkeys, parrots, and more, please support this organization and go on one of their tours. If my family had more time, we would have done the wildlife tour plus volunteer option, but we had to make it back to La Fortuna to go to Bogarin's night tour which is another AMAZING tour. You can check out my review on them as well.

What an amazing day - my daughter and I are still glowing from the experience! Carlos was our awesome guide, assisted by the lovely Daisy. You absolutely must add on the volunteer portion - we learned so much more about the animals and their diets, and the enrichment activities used at Proyecto Asis. Preparing the meals and then watching them get fed to the animals was so fulfilling. I cannot recommend this activity enough.

Our guide Carlos was the most gifted guide we've had in Costa Rica. He was charming, amusing, full of knowledge, great with the kids on our tour and his English was perfect. The tour we took was 2hrs to see the different animals that the project has rescued and to learn about the ways they are trying to rehabilitate the animals to go back to the wild (if this is possible). Its not a zoo so don't confuse it with one.

Its a very educational tour about the interaction between humans and animals in Costa Rica and the delicate balance of ecosystems.

You can also pay to help volunteer and to feed the animals though we didn't do this.

One thing I would point out is that some of the macaws and parrots are EXTREMELY noisy. This is nobody's fault and not at all a complaint. I took loads of videos and really enjoyed how deafening and crazy it was! Parrots do what parrots do. However, if you have young children or anybody with an ASD that is sensitive to loud noises in your group then its worth being prepared for this in advance.

This is a must do. Its very complimentary to other wildlife tours you may do or have done in LA Fortuna or the Arsenal area or even other parts of Costa Rica.

Hi Bonar_o_shea, Thanks so much for your review. We added that important detail to our FAQ for our tours visitors regarding the macaws and parrots. We are glad you enjoyed the activity and even described it as fascinating. We hope you can find us on social media and find out more of what we do.

My 21 year old daughter and I did the tour and volunteer session. Both were very enjoyable and I highly recommend it! Our guide Carlos shared his passion for these animals and educating the public about how to help protect them. He was entertaining and kept everyone engaged. This place does great work and I’m happy to support them. Next time I’ll plan ahead and bring some items from their wish/needs list.

This is an amazing place with a wonderful mission to save animals who were taken as pets in Costa Rica and now need a safe home.

We had a one hour tour where we got to see many different animals very closely. It’s sad to see them all in cages but apparently some of the animals have been around humans for too long and can’t be rehabilitated.

The staff are very knowledgable and friendly and they were extremely helpful when I was trying to figure out how to get there by public bus. Thanks Jessica and Adriana!!

This was one of my absolute favorite parts of my trip to Costa Rica. I am a big animal lover and I learned so much fascinating information throughout the tour. Carlos was our guide and he was very engaging, knowledgeable, and funny. The tour was a good length and the grounds are beautiful. I enjoyed this so much I am seriously considering returning for a volunteer trip next summer.

This place is awesome! It’s a wildlife refuge, for animals that were rescued either from the wild or people. The tour was absolutely awesome, very knowledgeable guide and a fun experience. Highly recommend for everyone. A great cause to donate too.
