Description

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

An Animal Planet™ exclusive, this unique up-close and personal encounter at Aviarios del Caribe/Sloth Sanctuary brings a small group of participants face to face with this enigmatic mammal in the world's first sloth-only facility that was featured in "Meet the Sloths" on Animal Planet. Ideal for all ages, this tour provides an enriched introduction to sloths and their habitat, then goes "behind the scenes". 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, as your local boatman/guide points out the indigenous rainforest foliage and diverse wildlife along the way. Meet sloths in a pre-release enclosure on a well-tended nature trail with towering trees and beautiful birds. A short stop at a certified banana plantation will be made for you to see the plants and fruits and their importance 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.
