A fun, interactive introduction to sloths: how they live, why they are unique and how human encroachment affects them. You will meet sloth rescue Nº 1, Buttercup, and see sloths in enclosures within the Learning Center. You might also see a wild sloth among other creatures during your 45-minute canoe ride to experience the sloths’ habitat. The sturdy fiberglass canoe fits six guests comfortably, and there no need to paddle. Your boatman, a local guide, will glide you along the shallow Estrella River to see protected lowland rainforest flora and fauna.

Though you will see sloths close up, only Sanctuary staff can touch or hold sloths. We understand that many sloth lovers dream of holding a sloth, but it is stressful and potentially harmful for a sloth to be held by a stranger.
