Day 1: Guanacaste’s Sloth & Animal Sanctuary Park

Guanacaste’s Sloth & Animal Sanctuary Park If you want to visit sloths in Costa Rica, this is your perfect opportunity. The open habitat Animal Sanctuary is home to three beautiful, slow-moving, two-toed sloths. All of them have been rescued by the Wildlife Ministry of Costa Rica and put in our care. Two-toed sloths are native to the Guanacaste area but these three were rescued outside of the province. During your visit you will get a close view of Sloths which are very delicate creatures due to their slow metabolism, so nursing them back to health is a challenge in itself.

There are daily feedings at 9:30 am, 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm in which the resident caretaker will educate visitors about these fascinating creatures. Due to more media awareness, many people are becoming fascinated with sloths and even an International Sloth Day has been created in order to raise awareness about the sloth life cycle and natural habitat as well as, educate people about this loveable and vulnerable tropical animal.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
