🦥Welcome to Selvatura Park Sanctuary Sloth Tour!

Discover the Enchanting World of Sloths

Are you ready to embark on a journey into the heart of the Costa Rican rainforest and witness sloths’ charming and slow-paced lives up close? Look no further than the Selvatura Park Sanctuary Sloth Tour – your gateway to an unforgettable wildlife adventure!

Available four times daily year-round, the Selvatura Sloth Sanctuary Tour is a great way to learn about these beautiful animals, see many of them, and photograph them up close.

Selvatura’s Sloth Sanctuary is a natural exhibit on a close roam among the trees and foliage of the exhibition, which provides a safe distance that allows observation while preventing as much stress on the animals as possible.

These beautiful mammals arrived at the sanctuary as refugees from the effects of poaching, habitat destruction, orphanages, illness, and accidents, among other reasons, which prevent them from being reintroduced to their natural habitat.

You will join a small group for a 45-minute guided tour, and you can stay inside the facilities after that to continue appreciating these beautiful creatures.




The Selvatura Park Sloth Tour was a dream come true! We saw sloths up close and personal; our guide’s knowledge and passion for these animals were genuinely inspiring. The whole experience was magical, and it felt great knowing that our visit supports sloth conservation. Highly recommended!”

Wonderful Experience! Selvatura Sloth Tour

I really wanted to see sloths up close, and saw they had a sloth tour in Monteverde, so I booked my tickets online. It was amazing to see them so close, and they were active while we were there. Climbing around and eating!
