This was a stop on our tour with Syltravel. The sloths were fun to see, and the guides were informative and entertaining at the same time. They also have a canal on the property and a canoe tour was included.

What a joy to see these wonderful creatures and learn about them. The staff was very knowledgeable. The only downside is no handicap ramp to see Buttercup and the souvenier store. Only stairs so a disappointment.

In addition, we got to visit with the older sloths that are permanent residents, see the medical facility and spend time in the nursery. Spending timing with the babies was an incredible experience.... More

We seen a few sloths and were given a lot of interesting information about them. They had a boat ride on some old canoes which although we did... More

This is an interesting facility with some great space for animals as well as an interesting and educational walk and canoe ride for visitors. The sloths are adorable and fascinating.
