My family went to visit the Sloth Sanctuary a few days ago during a visit to Costa Rica. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-1/2 hours. The river tour was nice but the highlight was visiting with the sloths and learning about them. We had seen sloths earlier in the day at both Cahuita National Park and Puerto Viejo but the only chance we had to get very close to them and learn about them (and pet them) was at the Sloth Sanctuary. The guides gave a very interesting talk and tour which kept our whole group (ages 9 through 50) engaged and interested. We feel that during the 2-1/2 hours we were there we saw every aspect of their operation and were very pleased. It was a treat to get close to animals who we otherwise would have seen only from the ground looking up. The sloths seem to be treated very well. My wife and I are both scientists (she with a PhD in biology) with experience in animal care and a lot of travel. We liked the Sloth Sanctuary. Our kids are just nice kids with a general interests in animals. It was nice that the visit was able to interest all of us equally.
