Want to see a baby sloth up close!?

In the little park in Quepos, just past the marina, there has been a baby sloth hanging out for the past week. It's a great opportunity to see one up close, and get some great photographs!

It has been in the tree just on the other side of the maintenance/guard hut for the past 5 or 6 days. It's usually eating early in the morning and sleeping the rest of the day.

He probably won't still be there when I go in May, but I may check anyway. That would make my whole trip!

The park is FREE.

It's just a small open area with great views of the ocean and a cool little cove. It has a little play area for kids, and a few park benches you can sit at and enjoy the views, or eat your lunch.

It's very rare for any sloth to be there, much less and cute, baby sloth! I have great pictures and videos of it up close.

What a great opportunity! We loved being able to hand feel the baby sloths at Toucan Rescue Ranch. They are adorable. I have only seen 2 adults "in the wild" on my visits to Costa Rica so far! Too bad we aren't there now.

How BEAUTIFUL, going in May and hoping I will get the pleasure myself. That would make my trip worth while.
