This is a MUST-DO in La Fortuna if you care to see or learn about wildlife!! We booked the sloth tour only a couple days in advance, and the wildlife tour was showing as sold out online. However, when we arrived, they kindly let us join the wildlife tour anyway!! Thank goodness because it was a huge highlight! Our guide, Carlos, was funny, knowledgeable, and extremely engaging. We saw blue and gold macaws, Scarlet and Green macaws, parrots, spider monkeys, a margay, white-faced monkeys, coati, Picaris, and more that I’m probably forgetting!! Most impactful was learning the tragic stories of how these animals were either kept as pets and domesticated, or injured and rescued. Carlos taught us what they do to prepare these animals for a return to the wild, and what we can do as humans to protect and maintain the beautiful habitats and ecosystems of these animals!!

After the wildlife tour we did the tour of the sloth sanctuary with the wonderful Adriana! They did not have any rescue sloths with them at the moment, but the sanctuary is situated right inside a real, wild forest, where we saw four sloths!!! Adriana taught us all about sloths, and used her telescope to show them to us close up and take photos and videos for us, which she Air Dropped to us all at the end of the tour (brilliant!). We saw three two-toed sloths, and after Adriana searched and searched, she found us a TINY, ADORABLE, 9 month old three toed sloth!! It was eating low on a tree, so we walked quietly up to it, and saw it from about 10 feet away! What an opportunity.

Both Adriana and Carlos were outstanding, professional, knowledgeable guides. What an experience!!!

As a special touch, after both tours we were offered coffee, tea, ice cold water, lemonade, and delicious pineapple empanadas!

Tip: Proyecto Asis advises you to wear bug spray - you should listen!! Wear TONS of bug spray, and bring the bottle with you! Wear closed-toe shoes, socks, long pants, and long sleeves if you can stand the heat, to protect from the bugs. Some of the people in our group got attacked by mosquitoes.

We did the 1 night homestay program with our two young kids. As part of that, we did the sloth tour (these are wild sloths that are attracted to the land, they are not confined) and the wildlife tour with meal and enrichment helping. As others have said, Carlos is a great guide and clearly passionate about his work and animal rescue. The kids had a great time with the activities and tour as well as the homestay. Our homestay hosts were a couple with grown children who live about 5 minutes or less by car from the Proyecto (and are experienced hosts). The food was great and they graciously accommodated food allergies of our kid, which I hadn’t expected them to be able to do. The hosts showed us around their lovely backyard farm and it was a great opportunity for the whole family to practice Spanish and get a taste of real Costa Rica!

THIS WAS MY FAVORITE THING FROM OUR WHOLE COSTA RICA TRIP! Carlos is an amazing guide and we learned so much about the animals and how they're cared for. Definitely bring bug spray!!!

There are a ton of places that advertise Sloth tours and they are shills everywhere. Beware! With some research, we found this sanctuary that actually has a preserve and restores the health for injured sloths from elsewhere. The guide is highly, highly knowledgeable and truly educates visitors on sloths, their habits and habitat. She focused visitors on her telescope so we can see them in the wild [instead of some zoo-like setting]. For half the price of the sleazy, touristy “tours”, you can actually learn about sloths. Don’t fall for the shills! Put your money to use and help this group.

What an amazing day - my daughter and I are still glowing from the experience! Carlos was our awesome guide, assisted by the lovely Daisy. You absolutely must add on the volunteer portion - we learned so much more about the animals and their diets, and the enrichment activities used at Proyecto Asis. Preparing the meals and then watching them get fed to the animals was so fulfilling. I cannot recommend this activity enough.

After a great experience in 2019 with Proyecto Asis, we certainly booked again for our return trip this year. Carlos was our guide both times and we were thrilled that the high quality of the tour and volunteer program was just as amazing as before. The monkeys got a little crazy around feeding time. It was a fun and rewarding educational experience.

We had a great time with our toddler and baby at Proyecto Asis. This is a center that takes in animals that were illegally kept in private homes with the goal of getting them back into the wild. Our guide did a great job of explaining the "why" behind many of the processes at the center. We also participated in the volunteer program at the center, making food for the animals. Our toddler in particular loved this and the staff did everything possible to make her feel included in the volunteer experience. I would highly recommend a visit for anyone with young children.

10/10 recommend the Sloth Tour. Arianna is so knowledgeable, kind and sweet. You can tell her passion for these special animals and she could answer any question we had about them. We got to see five sloths on our 1.5 hr tour! A must do while in La Fortuna!

I’ve reviewed my mornings volunteer tour with Carlos on a different post and my afternoon was blessed with the most amazing sloth tour guided by the super knowledgable Adriana.

Within a few minutes we had our first perezosa in sight. Typically relaxing it’s life away!

Adriana explained about sloths , their lifestyles , their problems and their place amongst nature. Highly fascinating.
Nothing was rushed about the tour , everything was spoken with such passion and at times I felt as if I was part of the team at the rescue. It really did feel that intimate !

The history of the rescue was also explained and It is heartwarming to know that places like this still exist purely for the benefit of the animals.

Every animal I saw was treated with such love and respect by all the staff involved.

Pure class , pure passion and definitely one of Costa Rica’s highlights.

Pura Vida !!!

The reviews sold this to me via Google and trip advisor.

I will add to the positive reviews.

I booked the 0830 tour with volunteer programme.
Carlos, our guide was knowledgable, interactive and fun. The tour gave us the opportunity to learn about the animals but it was the volunteer section of our tour which I felt was the most interesting of all.

We prepared the meals as per the rescue’s dietary requirements and it was just a fantastic experience witnessing feeding time as we were able to be so close to the animals.

Top marks to Carlos and top marks for the tour !
