Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary

Top choice nature reserve in Dominical

Around 1.5km east and uphill from Dominical, this wildlife sanctuary takes in injured and orphaned animals as well as illegal pets. Its mission is to rehabilitate those that can be and reintroduce them to the wild, and look after those that cannot. During the 60- to 90-minute tour you're introduced to its residents: a macaw missing an eye, monkeys that were caged since infancy, Bubba the famous coati and more. Entertaining, educational and a terrific cause.
