SLOTH TOURS

Your visit directly supports our mission of care for injured, orphaned and abandoned sloths, plus research about their species and promoting rainforest conservation.

Buttercup Tour: Click for details

A fun, interactive tour to meet rescued sloths and learn all about sloth physiology, behavior, their habitat and the perils faced in the wild. You’ll experience the lush lowland tropical rainforest and its wildlife as you glide in a large canoe on the Estrella River with an experienced boatman. Of course you will get to  meet Buttercup, the sweet-smiling sloth-celebrity of Animal Planet’s “Meet the Sloths”!

Duration: about 2 hours. Advance booking not required.

Sorry, only Sanctuary staff may touch and hold sloths. This is because sloths have a physical stress response when held by unfamiliar people.


Insider’s Tour: Click for details

All the fun and essential sloth intel of the Buttercup Tour … then you go “behind the scenes” to meet rescued baby sloths in the NICU/Nursery. You’ll also visit the Slothpital clinic to see where newly-rescued sloths are assessed and treated, and resident sloths’s wellness is maintained. For many guests, the Insider’s Tour is a bucket-list achievement, as it is so difficult to see wild sloths up close. We hope you’ll enjoy every minute!

Duration: about 3 hours. Advance booking & payment required, please.
