Tour or participate in the conservation efforts at Proyecto Asis, a wildlife shelter and education center. Daily visits provide insight into the work necessary to nurture wounded and abandoned animals before they are reintroduced into the wild. You can make a significant contribution if you volunteer, getting up close and personal with the animals as you help make toys for them, build new enclosures, and help prepare their food. Call or check the website in advance, as prior reservations are required before visiting.

  • Nice knowledgeable guide, good strong conservation message. Worth making a stop. You can tour only, or tour and volunteer.
  • Amazing!! They have very limited space and it's very popular for good reason make an appointment and call ahead of you don't go with a tour guide. You'll be able to feed and see sloths and tucans and tons of other animals. You can volunteer to get in for free but we didn't do that
  • Really excellent couple of hours learning about the animals, and an excellent cause with all profits going back to the project. The guides were amazing and really cared.
  • We did the tour/volunteer option and enjoyed every bit of it. Carlos was our guide and was very passionate and knowledgeable about the animals. Would definitely recommend this place, its for a good cause!
  • Easy way to help wildlife protection and learn about it, extremely recommended!!!
