4.7
#1 of 26 in Wildlife in La Fortuna de San Carlos
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.

  • We spent 5 days here volunteering and taking Spanish classes. The staff is composed of a group of truly committed individuals and they are concerned for the animals and work hard to educate the public. The guided tour is excellent and everyone seems to enjoy it. Highly recommended
  • Carlos was a great tour guide. Awesome experience, educational and saw lots of amazing animals. I held hands with Jessica the monkey and pet Perla the pig. A+
  • Fantastic place. I absolutely recommend this place if you want to k ow more about animal in Costa Rica and be able to feed them. The guide was very good and passionate.
  • 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
