Flores Things to Do: 22 reviews and 47 photos
ARCAS is a non-profit refuge where animals, rescued from smuggling attempts, are reeducated before being reintroduced to their habitat if possible.
Since the very purpose of ARCAS is to acclimatize the animals to a human-free environment, you don't see animals during the visit. However, the visit is illuminating - if not uplifting.
During my visit, I talked a bit with some volunteers from London who had been working there for months.
ARCAS can be reached via a short boat ride from Flores. Your boatman will wait while you visit. The visit is free but a donation is expected.
