Delightful rustic eco park with butterflies and rescue animals. It was an adventure getting here, and we absolutely thought it was worth it! (Actually memories from 2011 trip)

A super place to learn. I used to work there for a year. Nice place to visit. The owner and founder has an authentic love for nature and the region. Visiting the place its a pleasure. And you are helping for sure to a great cause, the conservation of the region as it is. Beatiful and perfect.

PLEASE NOTE: El Refugio is now CLOSED!!! Actually, from what I understand, they are still open in the sense that they are caring for some of the animals from when they were previously open. HOWEVER, they are now closed to the public. From what I heard, because of funding. Hope this saves you an unnecessary trip, esp seeing that's its quite a trek from Zihuatenejo. Was surprised to still see this on Trip Advisor!

Drove & walked the village. Had lunch on the beach near the lagoon. Beautiful beach with very few tourists on it
