Wildlife Hike on Arenal’s Sloth Trail

See everyone’s favorite Costa Rican mammal in its natural habitat!

Sloths are native to Central America and Costa Rica boasts premier sloth-spotting locations. Visit one of them today—Arenal’s Sloth Trail. 

Explore 50 acres of tropical forest peppered with cecropia trees, the sloth’s favorite hideaway. Your naturalist guide will point out other flora and fauna while you search for these lethargic jungle denizens. 

Watch the slow, deliberate movements of two- and three-toed sloths moving up tree trunks and along branches. If you’re lucky, you might see a mother with a baby clinging to her fur.
