On this tour you will encounter one of the world's most fascinating creatures - the sloth!

We will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the "Sloth Territory", a small ecological family run project close to La Fortuna, where on a 1 mile walk you can observe two-toed sloths and three-toed sloths in their natural habitat and learn about their behaviors, habitats, and ecological significance.

Why are sloths so important?

Sloths are fascinating creatures that play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance of their habitat. They are one of the slowest mammals on the planet and spend most of their lives in trees, sleeping up to 20 hours a day. Sloths are an essential component of the rainforest ecosystem, as they disperse seeds, provide a source of food for predators, and regulate the growth of plant life. In addition, they are extremely cute!

Day or Night Tour?

Our sloth watching tour is available both during the day and at night, providing you with a unique opportunity to observe sloths during different times of the day. Normally sloths are more active at night, but some can also be active during the day.

This tour is suitable for adults, families, and children of all ages.

Our specialized guides are trained to find the sloths, so we can guarantee their observation on all tours. We also provide the observation equipment.

After the tour we enjoy a small snack of fresh fruits before we take you back to your hotel.

Our sloth watching tour is a unique and unforgettable experience that provides you with an opportunity to learn about and appreciate the importance of sloths in their natural habitat. Our knowledgeable guides, combined with our commitment to responsible eco-tourism, ensure that visitors have a memorable and educational experience. We invite you to join us on this adventure, and we look forward to sharing our passion for sloths with you.
