Adventures Offered

Have you ever traveled to a country and wondered…how can I have a great visit while also helping those in the area? Now – you can do just that as we’re excited to offer eco travel adventures, in a pristine location, all while helping a community care for its own.
Guayabo Animal Rescue has a 360-degree view of the surrounding hills and volcano, screened-in patio with a grill and other amenities, hiking, ATV, horseback riding and trails, birdwatching, orchard exploring (yes –while visiting pick a Ruby Red grapefruit for breakfast or honey from our beehives), and the best part….you can help care for our rescued horses, goats, and dogs. Help feed, brush, and nurture these loving animals, all who come to us due to abandonment, abuse, or no one else is able care for them.
OH and if you fall in love with one of our dogs, you never know, depending on who it is…you may be able to adopt. We can help you navigate the process to take a dog out of the country if that’s best for the dog and you! Seen here, our executive director came for a visit and left with a sweet dog they call – Tica from Costa Rica.
