Sloth Tour and Tortilla Making Experience

Experience the ultimate adventure as your kids zoom from tree to tree, eagerly searching for the next sighting on our Sloth Tour and tortilla-making experience. We’ll pick you up from your hotel and take a short drive outside of La Fortuna, where your family expert guide will lead you through the enchanting rainforest in search of the two-toed and three-toed sloths. With their extensive knowledge of local wildlife, our guides will ensure an unforgettable experience. Watch as your kids’ eyes widen with excitement, using their laser vision to spot sloths hidden among the trees. Along the way, you may also encounter possums, frogs, owls, and other tropical creatures.

The Sloths Territory, a gem of nature, spans thirteen hectares of privately owned land. The Rodriguez Perez Family, dedicated to preserving the environment, maintains and protects this reserve. Ten hectares are currently undergoing reforestation, while the remaining three hectares are a vibrant tropical paradise teeming with flora and fauna. The Sloths Territory serves as a permanent home for a variety of wildlife species, allowing them to freely explore their natural habitat within and beyond the reserve.

After an invigorating hike through the Sloths Territory, your family is sure to work up an appetite. As you arrive at Doña Mara’s home, a warm welcome awaits you, along with a refreshing tropical drink made from locally sourced pineapple, oranges, and coconut water.

While lunch is being prepared, you and your family will have the opportunity to learn the art of making traditional tortillas using freshly ground corn “masa.” Under Doña Mara’s guidance, you’ll shape the masa into circles, and together, you’ll cook them on her authentic wood-fired stove.

During your visit, feel free to practice your Spanish and engage with the locals. At the “rancho,” you’ll share a delicious Costa Rican lunch known as a “casado” – a delightful typical dish with rice and beans, including the tortillas you helped create!

What families love about this tour: The unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture. From the hands-on tortilla-making lesson to the time spent in the home of Doña Mara and her family, you’ll gain an authentic and enriching experience. This is a true Pura Vida adventure that allows you to embrace the Costa Rican way of life and create lasting memories.

Join us for an unforgettable Sloth Tour and tortilla-making experience, where nature, wildlife, and cultural immersion come together in perfect harmony. Book your tour today and embark on a journey that will leave your family with cherished moments and a deeper appreciation for Costa Rica’s natural beauty and traditions.
