Saw some two and three toed sloths and some super photos taken. One was with her baby, which was very cute. Also saw Toucans, a Boa Constrictor and plenty of other birds. Nice breakfast at the end too.

Torrential rains should cancel
Toni_L, Nov 2022
This trip probably would have been great but there were torrential rains. Which meant the areas we were in had flooded streets and huge puddles of water. It was slippery and wet. Any sloth we did see was curled up because it was raining so hard. They really should have cancelled due to the weather.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
We are very sorry to hear that the experience was not as expected. The weather in this area of Costa Rica is unpredictable. Thank you very much for your comment, we will take your suggestion into account.

Great excursion
Chris_F, May 2022
I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guides were very friendly and went above and beyond to ensure you see sloths and toucans! During our 7 days in Costa Rica, we only saw sloths on this tour. I highly recommend it!

Hola Chris!! Thank you so much to share your experience with us.!
Thank you
Amy_W, Apr 2022
Perfect for a family with small children. Really knowledgeable and friendly guides. So much wildlife (not just sloths). Provided binoculars, umbrellas and water as well as a little afternoon snack in a little jungle restaurant. Really enjoyable. Saw around 8 sloths in total.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hola Thank you so much for your review.!
Fun and Easy
Robert_W, Mar 2022
Very nice and professional. We went to the river and walked a small easy path. We saw 11 sloths, frogs, leaf cutter ants, multiple birds including a toucan. It was great. Then we went for a hot chocolate coffee break before ending the trip. Well worth it. The guides had laser pointers they used to point a meter or so under the sloths to not bother them. It helped to see them. They also had spotting scopes for all to see the sloths up close.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hola Robert. Thank you so much for your review.!
Perfect for people who love sloths!

Enjoyable afternoon following nature in Costa Rica!
Mary_C, May 2021
We were hesitant to make the tour - but we are certainly glad we did. Within a few minutes of departing our hotel - our driver/guide spotted a sloth - we were amazed. During the tour we spotted numerous sloths (both two and three toed) - some sloths were on the move - while others were content to just hang in the tree. We also spotted toucans, vultures and a pack of monkeys. We were also lucky enough to see the ever so tiny red blue jeans frog. I am sorry to have forgotten our drivers name but he was very knowledgeable and was very easy to communicate with.
Response from Host, July 2021
Thanks a lot for sharing your experience, this inspire us to keep offering great experiencies to our guest.!
Wonderful !
Heidi_F, Mar 2021
We saw a mother sloth with her baby - we watched one climb down the tree, we looked at them through the telescope Oscar had set up. We also saw two different kinds of toucans and heard the growls of the howler monkeys
Absolutely incredible tour
Linda_C, Mar 2021
A young female with took great interest in my us, came very close and even reached out towards us. We didn't go touch her but was amazing. She then went down onto the ground and (very slowly!) Crossed the road while we stood guard for cars and dogs
Great tour
Andrew_W, Jan 2020
Fantastic tour with Oscar and Alvaro. Alvaro was great a spotting sloths. We saw all types of sloths and got some great photos. We also saw monkeys toucan etc. Was best tour we have done
Epic Tour finished with Food made with love
chris_l, Dec 2019
This tour was awesome! my small group saw 10 sloths, toucans, poisonous frogs, Cara Cara and other beautiful animals. Our guides (guide and driver - sorry horrible memory for names) were super knowledgeable, gentle with our children and fun to hang with for a few hours. The tour was finished by a short hike through the rainforest to a wide open restaurant that is surrounded by animal activity. Amazing experience and the food was the best I had on the 10-day trip.
