One of the most beloved animals of our country is the famous sloth, captivating us with its tenderness and slow behavior. We cannot deny it, we all have envied their lives at some point.
La Fortuna is a unique site to watch sloths, our climate, food availability, protection and the absence of predators make this area, and the property you will visit, a small natural oasis.
You will have the option of enjoying this activity in the morning, at 8:00 a.m., in the afternoon, at 2:00 p.m. or have a night hike at 5:30 p.m. Two-toed sloths are nocturnal, and it is easier to see them active and in motion in the evenings.
We will pick you up at your hotel at your chosen schedule and start this exciting journey into the sloths' territory, which is within a small family-friendly eco-project just 5 minutes from La Fortuna. The project has a path of 1500 m. (A little less than a mile) suitable for adults, families, and children of all ages; we will make a tour of approximately 2 hours in the midst of plants, a river bordering the property and of course you can not miss the Guarumo trees (Cecropia obtusifolia), the favorite food of sloths in Costa Rica.
During the tour, we highlight the importance of its protection, as illegal trade has grown due to its increasing popularity. Because of this, Ecoterra Expeditions along with the Rodríguez family are maintaining this privileged area to protect the sloths in Costa Rica.
