We will pick you up from your hotel to embark on an exciting journey to Sloth Territory, nestled within a small family ecological project just a short 5-minute drive from La Fortuna. This project boasts a 1.5km (1 mi) trail that caters to individuals of all ages, including adults, families, and children.
Over the course of approximately 2 hours, we will immerse ourselves in stunning flora, follow a scenic path along the property's river, and, of course, encounter the majestic Guarumo trees, which serve as the sloth's preferred food source.
Throughout the tour,you will emphasize the crucial significance of sloth protection. Given their growing popularity, the illegal trade of this species has witnessed a substantial surge. It is important to keep in mind that sloths are solitary creatures and spend the majority of their time sleeping or resting in the treetops. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to observe two types of sloths: the Two-toed sloth and the Three-toed sloth. If you are fortunate, we may even witness the heartwarming sight of a mother sloth with her baby.
The Sloth Observation Tour sets a benchmark in the country, as it ensures responsible resource management, respects the space of these creatures, and conserves their natural habitat. To enhance your observation experience, the knowledgeable Naturalist Guide will provide you with top-quality observation equipment. Without disrupting their behavior, we can enjoy the delightful presence of these charming and smile-inducing animals in their natural state.
Upon concluding this enchanting encounter, you will safely transport you back to your hotel. By the end of the tour, you will understand why it is often said that a visit to Costa Rica is incomplete without experiencing the joy of observing a sloth.
