It’s no secret that at Tulemar, we love sloths! Not only do we love sloths, but we are passionate about their health, safety, and conservation, which is why we are proud partners with the Sloth Institute of Costa Rica. At Tulemar you can find the Sloth Institute’s release facility, and you can often find The Sloth Institute’s staff wondering the Tulemar trails looking for and studying sloths.
If you’re reading this, we will go ahead and assume you also love sloths (welcome to the club!). And if that’s the case: you’re in luck! We offer a daily “Sloth Walk” available exclusively to Tulemar guests, and trust us, it’s just as good as it sounds. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:
Price: $15. The money goes directly to help the research, rescue, and rehabilitation of our beloved sloths.
Time and Day: The Sloth Walk is offered every day except Tuesday. It starts at 9:00am and lasts roughly an hour and a half.
Where to Meet: You meet your tour guide at the Tulemar reception desk and depart from there.
Where You’ll Walk: The hike begins at the top of Tulemar, passes through trails and roads, and finishes up at the Tulemar Beach!
During the Tour: In a short guided hike, you’ll have the opportunity to encounter many beautiful birds, monkeys, and (of course) sloths. Not only that, but your knowledgeable guide will share awesome facts about the animals, the vegetation, and even some of the Tulemar homes!
So, don’t forget to pack your walking shoes, because our Sloth Walk is sure to be a big hit with anyone in your family! And, if you’re looking for more ways to help The Sloth Institute, here are some great links!:
