While I admire what this organization is doing, it still feels like visiting a zoo. Because we would have had to wait over an hour for English tour, we opted for the Spanish tour, as one reviewer said they translated some things in English Ours, however did not, even though he knew some English. There was a LOT of him... More

We had a few hours prior to our flight, and this place was close by so we walked (you can take the local bus or a taxi). The next tour was a half hour away and was only Spanish speaking, but we took it. They were so accommodating and changed the tour so that it was Spanish and English!!! Even... More

I don't understand how anyone could give this place a low rating. These animals are rescues and if you ask you will learn their individual stories. First you get pulled by a tractor out to the refuge for a few minutes. Then the guide leads you to see mammals and birds and a caiman. Our guide Carlos was really fun... More

It's hard to find right words to express my respect to the people who work in Guiraoga saving all kinds of birds and animals. Even though it looks like a zoo, the difference is, that the park treats and rehabilitates animals and birds. The place is very educational for us,people,to see how cruel we can be. In spite of extremely... More

Although a visit to this reserve this was an afterthought we were really impressed. Upon arrival we were told we would have to wait an hour before being escorted by a guide. This didn't matter too much as there is a small cafe and gift shop. The guided walk was informative and they had a good selection of animals!! Our... More

Incredibly well run, beautifully maintained centre, with the health and recovery of birds and animals truly the main goal of everyone working there. Spacious cages are surrounded by jungle so visiting monkeys and birds can hang out near their friends. The guide we had, Lorena, is very knowledgeable, very concerned about animals and birds being maltreated or captured for sale.... More

I'm normally wary of animal-focused outings because of "sad zoo" element that it too often present. Guiraoga was lovely. Granted, there were only Spanish-speaking tours when I visited and my Spanish is very limited, but the animals all had safe enclosures and were well-taken care of. I loved how close we were able to get to different animals and birds.... More

Half way through we were rained out - not Guiraoga's fault but I've tried to imagine what it would have been like in nice weather! They do excellent work rehabilitating wild animals, just bear in mind that this is NOT a zoo. Saw my first ever armadillo! The tour was in Spanish, but the tour guide gave us a separate... More

Not great but friendly staff, nice walk through the jungle. The bird cages are not the biggest I have seen in bird parks. Some of the animals seem a little cage crazy, pacing up and down. But the staff know their stuff, it's not overly priced and passes a few hours.

Saw a number of the local animals, only tour available was in Spanish (which ours is very limited) so couldn't get the full amount of information about each of the animals. Great to see the work being done to help injured animals.
