My expectations were completely flipped on their head when I came here. Initially I was underwhelmed by the establishment. I was only spending twenty four hours here, but wasn't quite sure of where I was allowed to go or what was nearby locally. Luckily, the volunteers allowed me to help with routine tasks and got a chance to interact with some of their rescued animals. The wildlife around the sanctuary slowly started to show themselves and I finally got a chance to witness what made this place magical. The experience had everything from an curious spat between a coati and spider monkeys to a capybara making a run for it (albeit inside of a fenced enclosure). If you do stay in the tree house and you have mosquito-attracting physiological qualities, bring an insect net for sleeping under. I'm glad I did!
It took me sometime to get my bearings, but it was a fantastic place to meet world-traveling volunteers, friendly staff, and charming wildlife.More
