This place is a fabulous rescue center - it is NOT a zoo! The animals seemed well cared for and being able to feed feed the manatees was such a fun experience. I am glad that the animals are released back into the wild as the manatees are very important to the ecosystem. We were told that people are hunting the manatees for meat or capturing the babies to be "pets", which is a horrible life for the poor animal. The staff person we talked to knew a lot about manatees and seemed to really care about them. This is definitely the kind of place to support!!
We took the number 49 bus on Africa street. Since there isn't a bus schedule, we just waited like 10 minutes until 49 came. We also caught the bus on the way back into town. It costs 3 soles round trip by bus.
