Arenillas Zoo is more than just a zoo

Our objective is to be a center for rescued animals who are the product of trafficking and illegal captivity. Our mission is to house them, to rehabilitate them and when they are ready in coordination with the Ministry of Environment of Ecuador, to reintroduce them into their natural habitat. You can observe more than 60 species and a total of 400 different birds, mammals and reptiles.
Because at Hillary Resort life grows and grows…
