Tour overview

  • Activities for young and old: animal watching, cow milking, chocolate making and more.
  • Sloth observation and eco farm with lunch included.
  • Small groups and specialized guides for the best care.

We will pick you up from the hotel at the reserved time to start our sloth tour. This will take place in a small ecological family project just 5 minutes from La Fortuna. We will explore a trail of about 1 mile, suitable for people of all ages. The tour, which lasts about two hours, takes us past the riverbank and many ant trees which are the sloths favorite food. Both two-fingered and three-fingered sloths live on site. Our specialized guides are experts at spotting the sloths so we can guarantee you will see them.

With a seasonal fruit snack the observation ends and we continue to Agua Azul de La Fortuna reaching a family farm. We are welcomed with a fresh fruit juice drink called a "batido" and presentation to learn more about the main objectives of the family project including the promotion of the sustainable use of natural resources and the preservation of Costa Rican customs.

After this warm welcome, we get down to business! We can milk a cow ourselves which is a great experience  for all ages. Afterwards we will taste fresh milk, chocolate, and homemade schnapps while watching the "Alambique" which is the artisanal process of distilling schnapps. We learn how sugar cane juice is made and have the opportunity to lend a hand ourselves. The fresh sugar cane juice can be tasted pure, with mint or "with shot". There will also be an introduction to traditional chocolate making. For this we have some indigenous artifacts at our disposal. We learn the complete process from the cacao fruit to the final product and snacking is of course allowed!

Finally, we can walk through the orchard and medicinal plant garden before lunch calls. Foods are traditionally made from ingredients directly from the farm, such as coffee, cheese, tortillas and more. We'll enjoy it before heading back to the hotel.

Note: If the tour starts at 10 a.m., the farm will be visited first, then lunch will be taken and then we will continue with the sloth tour. You can combine it with a visit to hot springs for an extra charge (see tour options on the right when choosing a date). There are several hot springs to choose from where you can relax and soak in the warm, healing waters of the arenal volcano during a three-hour stay and also enjoy a dinner. The transfer back to your hotel is included.
