What you'll do

We are the Palomino Animal Soul family, and we are currently the only animal rescue and shelter within Palomino, Colombia since 2013. We invite all doggy and animal lovers to spend the day on the beach with our rescues! 100% of all proceeds are put directly back into the shelter to help support the rescue and rehabilitation of homeless cats and dogs within the region.
We will meet at Finca Escondida at 9AM, where you will have the chance to pick a dog to walk with.
We enjoy a 45 minute tranquil stroll along the beautiful sands of our Palomino beaches before arriving at our first stop along the river where the doggies take a break, go for a quick swim, and we enjoy a breathtaking backdrop of the majestic snowcapped Sierra Nevada Mountains.
We continue for another 15 minutes before arriving at the San Salvador river mouth offering a stunning view of this tropical oasis where we will spend the next 90 minutes or so.
Refresh yourself with a dip in the crisp clean waters of the San Salvador River as the doggies splash and play right along side you.
Now get ready for some delicious vegetarian snacks! We offer a selection of regional fruits and coffee, followed by our homemade pita bread served with a variety of dips and veggies. And don’t forget to have some of our homemade cake! We guarantee that you’ll be sure to receive an overdose of doggy love during the 4 hours you are with us!

Where you'll be

We begin in the beach, shades of green and blue, a palm sandy beach. Behind us the magnificent Sierra Nevada, a chain of mountains with 5.700 meters in its 2 highest snowy peaks. Here the sweet and salty waters mix. This amazing river is nurtured by the ice of the mountains and it makes delicious natural pools where you have the chance to see different type of colorful birds and a variety of wildlife live all around.
A true taste of paradise!

One of the most lovely and amazing experience. We really loved our day at the beach with the team (Karina & Diego) and the beatiful dogs! Animal Soul is doing the most they can to give these animals a better life and to reduce the problem of stray dogs and cats in Palomino. And not only did we have the chance to spend time with furry, also discovered an awesome place; the river and the sea together was perfect. You can feel the love Karina has for the animals and the effort she puts in everything, so If you like animals or just want have and positive moment, please support this shelter and book this experience!

A wonderful day, probably the best of my holiday so far. Karina operates a shelter for lost and injured dogs (and quite a few cats) in Palomino. The great thing about this experience is that you have an amazing time, the dogs have an amazing time and the money you pay goes towards food and medicine for the dogs! On this experience, you meet with Karina and her dogs in the morning, you get to take one of the dogs on a leash and you all go along the beach to a beautiful spot where a river enters the sea. There you have a picnic of fresh fruits, snacks, coffee and lemonade that Karina and her assistant take with them. You can bathe in the river and play with the dogs and you can see the mountains in the distance over the river mouth. You can then decide whether to stay and enjoy the sun, or go back to town with the others. Overall this is a great experience and also good value for money. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who enjoys dogs. If you are not comfortable with dogs, this experience is not for you but you can support the shelter with donations as well.
