Tour Overview

What you will visit:
Aviarios del Caribe/Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica
Costa Rica's three-toed sloth is a slow-moving, medium-sized mammal that is
highly adapted to life in the jungles of Central and South America. Meet this intriguing animal at the Aviarios del Caribe/Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica, a rescue center established in 1997. Here at the Sloth Sanctuary, the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sloths is emphasized with a focus on conserving the natural inhabitants of the Costa Rican rainforest. Guests go "behind the scenes" to learn about the sloths' habitat, the perils they face in the rainforest and steps being taken to protect the future of their species. Baby sloths can be seen in the NICU/Nursery, and the unique "Slothpital" showcases the highest level of care for rescued sloths. This onsite veterinary clinic has cutting-edge diagnostic equipment unlike any other in Central and South America.
What you will see along the way:
To fully experience the sloths' natural habitat, canoe expeditions along the Estrella River and natural trails through the dense rainforest offer up-close experiences with the indigenous flora and fauna.
Snack:
A light refreshment is served consisting of bananas, tangerines, bagged chips, sealed sweet rolls or cupcakes, bottled water, coffee and tea.
Shopping:
Visit the on-site gift shop for sloth-inspired souvenirs.
