About Proyecto Asis, La Fortuna
Proyecto Asis is one of the most well-known sites in La Fortuna. It is essentially a wildlife shelter and environmental education centre. It is famous for housing wild animals that have either been wounded, given up or rescued from the black market, and they are cared for and nursed back to health. There are daily tours to explore the Proyecto Asis, where visitors can see the animals and birds that have found a new home here.
Visitors can go on a guided tour, which begins with a brief introduction to Proyecto Asis. Then the tourists are taken on a nature trail, stopping in front of each animal enclosure to learn about them, where they are from, and what their stories are. These stories are the ones that make the animals that stay in the care of Proyecto Asis so compelling. In fact, this tour gives you the unique opportunity to not only see these animals, but interact with them as well.
For a complete Costa Rican experience, visitors can even opt for an all-inclusive home stay and tour, where they can volunteer in helping the animals out. They will be hosted by a carefully screened authentic Costa Rican family, who will provide you with the best food and hospitality the country has to offer.
Proyecto Asis may not seem like much at first glance, but don’t be deceived. There is good reason behind it being one of the most consistently top ranked attractions around La Fortuna, and that is because it isn’t just a tourist spot- it is an eye opener for everyone who visits, and a once in a lifetime chance to interact with some truly remarkable animals.

Proyecto Asis, La Fortuna Reviews
We spent 5 days here volunteering and taking Spanish classes. The staff is composed of a group of truly committed individuals and they are concerned for the animals and work hard to educate the public. The guided tour is excellent and everyone seems to enjoy it. Highly recommended
Carlos was a great tour guide. Awesome experience, educational and saw lots of amazing animals. I held hands with Jessica the monkey and pet Perla the pig. A+
Fantastic place. I absolutely recommend this place if you want to k ow more about animal in Costa Rica and be able to feed them. The guide was very good and passionate.
Nice knowledgeable guide, good strong conservation message. Worth making a stop. You can tour only, or tour and volunteer.
Amazing!! They have very limited space and it's very popular for good reason make an appointment and call ahead of you don't go with a tour guide. You'll be able to feed and see sloths and tucans and tons of other animals. You can volunteer to get in for free but we didn't do that
