Need to know:
- If the river’s level changes or the current too swift, we may need to cancel the canoe segment for your safety.
- Guides are bilingual in English and Spanish but many of our boatmen only speak Spanish. If they cannot answer your questions during the canoe segment, please let us know. We are proud to hire local Costa Rican staff.
- Though you will see sloths close up, only Sanctuary staff can touch or hold sloths. We realize 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. Thank you for understanding.
- While most of the tour is on level ground, there are a few stairs, so if you have mobility issues, please let us know and we will assist you.
