El Arca Rescue Center
El Arca Rescue Center information
Lonely Planet review
Outside of the town of Cotundo , the El Arca Rescue Center houses a myriad rehabilitated animals in well-kept cages. Walk with a guide on the winding pathway to see hawks, parrots, anacondas, turtles, caiman and monkeys. For $1 more, swim in the tiny blue pool by the river. Travelers recommend El Arca over other animal-rescue centers in the area.
