Sloth Sanctuary - Excursions from Hotels

Hi,

Do any of the Puerto Limon hotels offer day excursions to the Sloth Sanctuary. We aren't planning on renting a car and I thought this might be the best option.

Thanks!

We haven't actually booked anywhere to stay yet, but we're flying into San Jose from Nicaragua on a Friday and flying back out on a Sunday so we thought we'd just jump over to the coast for a couple days.

My guess is you don't want to be in Limon, it is a port town, not interesting and although I live on this side of CR and do go to Limon I would not want to be there after dark. Therefore you would be looking at either Cahuita or Puerto Viejo to stay. Cahuita is a 4 hour drive and Puerto Viejo is 30 minutes further. Cahuita is closest to the Sloth sanctuary (about 15 minutes).

Sara knows Cahuita much better, let's hope she comes in. In the mean time maybe have a look at www.puertoviejosatellite.com

All the local taxi & tour guides know where the sanctuary is located and any hotel can set that up for you. If you haven't booked a hotel yet you might want to try www.HotelPlayaWestfalia.com as they have a good rating.

www.cahuita.cr has a website with a number of different places for different budgets. The Sloth Sanctuary offers B and B if this is the real focus of your stay.

In Cahuita, I recommend Mango Moon or Playa Negra Guesthouse.
