Worth a stop if you have a little time. Our only manatee sighting.

I am generally opposed to zoos and would rate this much lower if that is what it was. It is apparently a rescue center and they say that their animals are all rescued and will be... read more

I am generally opposed to zoos and would rate this much lower if that is what it was. It is apparently a rescue center and they say that their animals are all rescued and will be released into the wild if possible. The physical facilities vary from apparently satisfactory--I don't know how much space manatees should have--to what appears to... More

Small with dilapidated conditions for the rescued animals. Poor walkways make it difficult to get around.

We visited The Amazon Rescue Center on our way from Nauta to Iquitos. This important facility is just outside Iquitos. The Center has numerous rescued creatures from the Amazon Basin area that have been injured or are sick and, in much the same manor as similar facilities throughout the US, work to bring the animals back to health and then...

It was an interesting day out. I saw a few different types of animals. They say that they're going to be released back into the wild. I hope so as the conditions aren't great. The otters have a small enclosure. The monkeys are banging at their cages and the manatees are in small tiled pools. I'm fairly sure I was... More

I managed to get the opportunity to volunteer here, and loved every moment of it. There is a great team of dedicated volunteers here, who focus on rehabilitating and releasing injured and abandoned animals from the Amazon. Get up close to manatees, sloths, monkeys, turtles, and ocelots - all animals who are lovingly cared for in the best way possible... More

If you like animal encounters, this is a great place to go. You get to get up close to manatees, pet them, and feed them. Would definitely recommend it.

Wonderful to be able to hold sloths, monkeys and anacondas. Not an animal was behind bars. Small center but rewarding visit.
