The Caribbean Costa Rica: Sloth Sanctuary Experience

The Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica is the original rescue center for injured, orphaned and abandoned sloths. The Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica was officially authorized as a rescue center in 1997. The mission of Sanctuary is the rescue, rehabilitation, research and, when possible, release of sloths and educating people about conserving the rainforest, the sloths’ natural habitat.

The visit to the Sanctuary includes a fun & informative introduction to sloths: how they live, why they are unique and how human encroachment affects them. You will meet the sloths in enclosures within the Learning Center. There is no direct contact with sloths on any of the tours, for the safety of the sloths. 

Then will go “behind the scenes” to the Slothpital clinic and NICU/Nursery. Number of guests for “behind the scenes” is typically limited to 6 total.
