I'd say the choice was spot on and I didn't regret a single penny of the ticket. We were the only visitors ,I imagine because September is off season ,Hector guided us on the tour and in the various activities with great passion and expertise. The tour and preparation of meals for the animals lasts about 3 hours and pass away in an instant. For my children it was an exciting, highly educational and fun experience..... what to say I highly recommend it to everyone. Our congratulations and thanks go to all the staff.
Amazing place! This is a must see in my opinion, very informative tour and a great way to see wildlife in a way that is not promoting animal trafficking. The family who runs Asis has since 1994 and is doing amazing work protecting animals. They deserve your support! We did the tour + volunteer and it was worth it. Helping to feed the resident animals is a lot of fun and a great way to interact with them in a safe and positive way. Go support this wonderful organization, you won't regret it!
We had such a wonderful experience volunteering here. They treat the animals very well and rehabilitate them as soon as possible. The entire team is passionate about wildlife and sustainability and the information I learned on this trip is priceless.
