Great job these people are doing, the sanctuary was free of charge to visit, a donation is gratefully accepted on exit... and a free gift given as a thank you.

We saw the condors up close and personal, llamas, macaws, pumas, guinea pigs and heaps more. Be supportive and visit this amazing place. Do it for the animals.

This was included in one of our tours and we thoroughly enjoyed this visit, where they rehab injured animals. We were lucky to see the condors up close - they are huge, pumas, macaws, alpacas, llamas, all sorts of interesting animals. We gave a donation at the end of our visit and we received a free gift as a thank you. Very enjoyable.

This animal sanctuary is a really neat place to see some rare rescued animals up close and personal. You can take lots of pictures and even interact with some of the animals. The tour guides speak English and explain all of the animals and where they were rescued from. We saw turtles, llamas, parrots, a puma, swans, condors... the condors even flew right over top of us. There is no entrance fee, but they do encourage donations. Our hotel called a taxi for us, and it was 80 soles round trip to take us there and back to our hotel in Cusco. My only complaint was that I would have liked more time in the santuary to interact with the animals, it felt a bit rushed even though we were the only customers/guests there.

Great work by volunteers and donations to rehabilitate rescued animals from local areas and the Amazon and prepare them for release back into their habitat. Terrific opportunity to see some rare species and get close to many.

No entry fee, but after your tour, if you're not motivated to make a donation you obviously don't have a heart.

I enjoyed the tour and seeing the animals (especially Condors, Pumas & Macaws). The sanctuary is small but they seem to be doing good work and it´s an interesting thing to do for a morning or afternoon in Cusco away from the main tourist haunts. Lots of people don´t seem to know about it so if you want to go just go to the main square (Plaza de Armas) and near the fountain there are representatives from the sanctuary and they have a bus to take you there (once you pay for the bus the entrance and guided tour are free/included). There are also some nice alpaca textiles that you can buy if you want some souvenirs which will also support the sanctuary.
