  • The highlight of our trip. Our very young kids (5 and 3.5) were bored during the initial encounter, but had the time of their lives during the animal feeding. Our guide, Carlos, was personable and knowledgeable. Above all, Carlos was passionate about educating the public. Great time and a great cause, give them a look. Note that they do not allow flip flops, bring closed shoes.
  • Beautiful property with a great service to the local animal community. We were able to contribute and were able to feed the animals which was amazing!! We cant wait to go back.
  • We spent a full day at Proyecto Asis and loved every minute! Their messaging for the wildlife rescue and rehabilitation center is clear and current with today's environmental standards. Their rehabilitation and release program is excellent.
  • The work they do at this rescue center is absolutely wonderful and the tour we had was informative and entertaining. Our tour guide, Albaro, was fantastic, even despite the heavy rainfall. I definitely recommend adding this to a trip itinerary.
  • Excellent wildlife experience. The volunteer portion of the tour provided the opportunity to hand-feed monkeys and birds and other animals in the rescue center. It was extra cost, but enhanced the experience greatly, and should not be missed. Knowledgeable and friendly guide; family-friendly.
