Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica
Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica information
About 10km northwest of Cahuita, bordering the Río Estrella, the Arroyo family runs this private 88-hectare wildlife sanctuary dedicated to caring for injured and orphaned sloths. Visitors can observe these unique animals up close on group or private tours. (Irrefutable fact: there is nothing cuter than a baby sloth.) Though many of the reserve's rehabilitated sloths lack the skills to return to the wild, the Arroyos have successfully released more than 100 of them back into area forests.
