Paseo Los Monos is a rescue center for trafficked wild animals, mostly monkeys.
The centre is located on a hectare of land inside primary forest, near to the town of
Currently in the center live 65 monkeys from 7 species - spider, wooly, white capuchin, black capuchin, squirell, tamarin and saki.
Other wild animals living in the rescue center are coaties, gautusas, turtles and talking parrots.
We are trying to help all the animals that arrive to our center. Animals that can rehabilitize are getting all the help required and animals that unfortunately won´t survive are getting love and all the attention to make their lives better.
The center is being visited by tourists on daily basis. The symbolic entrance fee is one of the main incomes. We are hoping to educate for local and foreign tourists by explaining them about the center and the different abuse problems.
We invite anyone with a passion for animals and nature to volunteer in our center and help us create a better life for animals in need.
