The mission of this center is clearly the welfare of it's animal guests and education of humans about them. We visited twice in the 3 weeks we stayed in the area and would highly recommend it to everyone who wants to learn more about tropical species, especially monkeys and sloths and to see them up close. Our guides both times were well informed, friendly and well spoken. An amazing experience.

Small rescue center for sick or injured local wildlife. Very well run with the objective being to treat injured/sick wildlife and prepare them for reintroduction into the wild. Informative tour and great opportunities to get close to wildlife and take pictures up close.

We are a family of four (3 & 5 yrs), who really enjoyed this experience. The tour was interesting and with a sweet affection and love for the animals. The guide was smiling, dedicated, very experienced and spoke good english.
We would highly recommend a stop here!

We were sceptical but wow, you get a really good tour though the estate, you can touch apes, tucans and other animals. But at the same time its very different to a zoo. Great people there, do it!

We visited here in the end of December and just loved it! The young lady who did the tour was very knowledgeable and sweet. We saw many animals including deer, frogs, sloths, toucans (one that kept biting my daughter's sandal) and of course the monkeys. One little howler monkey right away took to my husband and crawled up his arm and took a nap there the whole time! We brought down Meyer's powdered goat milk for the animals and the staff really were very grateful. This is a must see for animal lovers.
