Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

The Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica is the world's first sloth-only facility and was featured in "Meet the Sloths" on Animal Planet. Many sloths arrive at the sanctuary injured, orphaned or abandoned. The knowledgeable and caring staff members tend to the animals until they are ready to be released onto the sanctuary grounds. Ideal for all ages, this delightful half-day tour provides an enriched introduction to sloths and their habitat. After a 40-minute drive, you will meet adult sloth ambassadors in the Learning Center. To fully experience the sloths' natural habitat, glide peacefully in a large canoe along the Estrella River, your local guide pointing out the rainforest foliage and diverse wildlife along the way. Return to port along a scenic route with a brief stop at a banana plantation to learn about the importance of this crop in the local economy.

Special Notes:


No touching or holding of sloths at the sanctuary (for their safety and yours), but you will see sloths up close and have many photo opportunities. Wildlife sightings, while common, are not guaranteed. Time segment sequences may change due to extreme weather or other conditions beyond the sanctuary's control. Closed-toe shoes, rain gear, sun hat and bottled water are recommended for your comfort.
