The guide was extremely knowledgeable about sloths, birds and the environment they live in. He was more then a guide as he was very passionate about his country and his work. We seen 8 slots including both 2 and 3 toes as well as a mother and baby. Too many bid to nam them all including Toucan’s as well as many frogs like the blue jean. Thanks Eliecer for the wonder experiences

Great night tour, Brandon was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable! We saw frogs, turtles and some sloths! One of them had even come down from the tree for his weekly bathroom break! I guess it's pretty rare to see and Brandon was even excited about it!

If you want to see sloths, many sloths in their natural setting you have got to do this trail. Our guide was awesome. He put us on 8 sloths and a baby. Even saw one scratching the ticks off. Plus many extras in the forest. Do it.

I went in the late afternoon with a guide. It was a nice walk and the guide helped us to see a lot of animals. Besides both types of sloths, we saw frogs, toucans, bats, an owl and many other birds. If definitely recommend the guide, they know where everyone is hiding.
