    Lots to see here

    This location is quite unassuming - but hidden back from the street is a wonderful wildlife park. Our guide led us to some memorable experiences - including great views of mom & baby sloths, plus up close views of poisionous frogs and owls. Our guide was warm with our family group of 10, and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna we saw. This is a slow tour - lots of standing/watching/waiting.
    Love sloths

    We saw a number of sloths. Several if them moved quite a bit which was amazing. We saw a toucan pooping which was funny and saw beautiful birds and lizards.

    This was the best tour our guide Sergio was amazing he found many sloths and made sure to help get photos and videos with the scope for really upclose shots. They used a laser light to point out exactly where to look so you would not miss the sloth.

    It looks very touristy, but the tour was good. The guide was very knowledgeable. He found several sloths, and helped take pictures of them for us. He found a poisonous frog and took a picture for us. Good tour and only took a little over an hour.
