Previous Reservation is required. Proyecto Asis is a Wildlife Shelter and Environmental Education Center located very close to La Fortuna. Wild animals which have been found wounded, forsaken or are rescued from the black market by the local forest rangers are brought here. Those that cannot be released are used within our educational programs. In order to finance our shelter, we offer daily tours and volunteer activities. Schedules: Monday to Saturday at 8:30 am or at 1:00 pm. Sundays Closed. Easy access facilities and trails for all ages.

We learnt about wildlife in Costa Rica. The tour changed how we see wildlife and pet ownership. Carlos was a great tour guide. Seeing the animals up close and being able to feed them (an appropriate and healthy meal, of course) was very rewarding.

Hi Jazzhound, We usually recommend to leave that area 1 hour in advance. The cost from there (round trip) usually costs about $80 to $85 (not charged per person, but the trip). Bookings are required to visit.
