What you'll do

Would you love to see a sloth in it's natural habita on a Caribbean beach?

Punta Uva serves as a favorite among visitors. It’s a small town that has stunning beaches, wildlife, a quiet atmosphere with beautiful viewpoints.

You will be walking the jungle trails and beaches with a professional guide visiting a amazing viewpoint and a cave. You'll learn about history, culture, plants and wildlife while searching for a sloth out in the wild. The Caribbean Jungle is home to more than 300 bird species, big blue butterflies, interesting insects and other animals like poison dart frogs, iguanas, snakes, sloths, armadillos, several species of monkeys among others.

We believe every animal is a important part of an ecosystem and that they don't belong behind a fence for human show. So the best way to support the sustainability is by ecotourism activities like this one.

When you finish your hike, we’ll be ready for a refreshing swim in the emerald green beach and snap some pictures. After you are satisfied of a few hours of fun we will head back.

This tour is in search of wildlife so there's a possibility that we might not see what we are out to find. The sloths are not in cages and move around freely on this beach and sometimes but hardly ever just don't want to be seen. But 99% of the time we get find them and see up to 10 or more on good days.

TRANSPORTATION NOT INCLUDED.

Ich habe einiges über Faultiere gelernt. Komisch fand ich, dass er am Schluss mit mir in meinem Auto zurückgefahren ist, weil er keine Fahrgelegenheit hatte. Das fand ich ein bisschen speziell.

Henry was very knowledgable regarding the plants and animals in the area. It was a fun experience and we would not have found the sloths without him since they are fairly difficult to spot. You should avoid wearing sandals or flip flops. :)

The tour was awesome. We walked a beautiful trail and saw over 20 sloths along with lots of other wildlife. Our tour guide was knowledgeable about the animals and the area, and very respectful of both. The transportation arranged for us was super convenient and on time. I highly recommend this experience!

Henry was our tour guide for the Sloth Tour and he far exceeded the expectations going into it. He was very knowledgeable about the land and animals and provided a great learning experience for us. We had expected to only see sloths but he showed us beautiful viewpoints as well. Did I mention we got to see over 15 sloths both 2 claw and 3 claw (something we learned with his expertise) ?! Do not pass on taking this tour, it was our favorite experience while in the Caribbean !

We had a wonderful time with Henry on our tour! saw probably 10-20 sloths, toucans, iguanas, and more, many which we never would have noticed without Henry's expertise! Henry was super knowledgeable about wildlife and general Costa Rican habitat! Henry was great to interact with and very personable! Walk was very leisurely and doable for most people. Would highly recommend if in Puerto Viejo!

Henry taught us a lot and offered a lot of great tips about spotting sloths. I actually found 3 of the 19 we spotted! I also really appreciated his obvious care for the environment; he had a plastic bag on his person and casually filled it with any trash/litter we passed.
