Nice tour

Our tour guide was very nice and we feel she loves her job. The exhibition itself, has a lot of birds, some monkeys and some cats. Worth an hour visit.

These folks are amazing. Every bad thing that happens to animals has them as the way back to either the wild or having a loving home. We heeded the advice to get the English language tour. The group included some USA teenagers who were not ideal companions. Despite this, the guide kept it all together. Great job. Visit for the... More

This will take either a morning or afternoon of your time and is well worth a visit and not too expensive. Easy to get around as long as you are okay walking on the flat for about an hour. You must be accompanied by a guide (included in the price) and ours spoke really good english. If you are a... More

this was a fun way to see the work being done with rescue animals from the wild. Tractor ride to the cages and then guides walk through the jungle and explain all the animals and fauna and their history Small fee to help with the upkeep

We enjoyed the wonderful english tour! The young lady (sadly, I forgot her name) who gave the tour was so passionate regarding animal safety and the environment. She knew the stories behind the animals. I had never seen toucans before. There are birds, monkeys, caimans, and other mammals. When an animal is hurt, this is the place that locals call.... More

The rescue center provides health care for the animals and education for the humans. A short ride in a tractor pulled wagon brings you to a 1.2 km walk through the jungle where the tour guide gives info in English and Spanish on each species visited. It's mostly birds but there are some monkeys and other mammals too. The day... More

TRAVELER? ANIMAL LOVER? Read this review. With my wife, we are traveling from Argentina to Alaska by car, visiting National Parks, Animal Reserves, and Charity Organizations. This is not my first time in GÜIRA OGA. Two years ago, we visited the place with two arab friends and they felt in love. But this time, it was even better. We had... More

While I admire what this organization is doing, it still feels like visiting a zoo. Because we would have had to wait over an hour for English tour, we opted for the Spanish tour, as one reviewer said they translated some things in English Ours, however did not, even though he knew some English. There was a LOT of him... More

We had a few hours prior to our flight, and this place was close by so we walked (you can take the local bus or a taxi). The next tour was a half hour away and was only Spanish speaking, but we took it. They were so accommodating and changed the tour so that it was Spanish and English!!! Even... More

I don't understand how anyone could give this place a low rating. These animals are rescues and if you ask you will learn their individual stories. First you get pulled by a tractor out to the refuge for a few minutes. Then the guide leads you to see mammals and birds and a caiman. Our guide Carlos was really fun... More
