In the refugee you can find a variety of animals, all from the amazon. These animals are all rescued animals or from illegal traffic or from people that kept them as pets but then can not take care of them anymore.
The work the owners do here is really good. They try to give these monkeys cages with as much natural environment around as possible.

Animals you can find here are Snakes, 4 kinds of monkeys, Crocodiles, Jaguars, Pumas, Tigrillas, Turtles, a jungledog, Tapirs, various Parrots, Capibara's and more.
Its really interesting and a cheap day out as the entrance fee was only around 3 dollars.

Also the food in the Refugees restaurant is really nice. You should try the Tilapia which is really fresh made!

Also there is a swimming pool where you can swim, relax and enjoy the sun all included in the entrance price.
