We loved everything about Proyecto Asis! Their mission and the work they put into protecting the animals and educating the public is wonderful. Our guide, Carlos, was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and passionate about the work they do there. We all learned a lot and my boys (6 & 9) stayed interested and excited throughout the tour. We opted to prepare food and enrichment for the animals at the end and I can't recommend it more! It was the perfect way to end our experience there. Absolutely worth the visit!!!
Make sure to book ahead. Saw some people looking sad in parking area. They tried to take care of "walk ups" but the tour was really excellent because our group was small. A wonderful CARE and concern place. If you listen and ask questions you will learn incredible things. There are some difficult decisions to be made about rescuing and/or letting nature take its course. Very educational - complex eco world we live in and these people are doing front line work. I was fine with the price of the tour because of the cause. Our guide was really good at his job. Gorgeous foliage on the property.
