El Arca Rescue Center

Animal Sanctuary in Cotundo & Archidona

Outside of Cotundo, the El Arca Rescue Center houses a myriad of 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.
