On this tour you will get to see some sloths in their natural habitat, and to visit to a true Costa Rican farm. The healthy home-cooked lunch you’ll enjoy here will be memorable.
We will pick you up at your hotel and start this exciting tour by heading towards the Territorio de Perezosos. It is a small ecological family project just a few minutes away from the city, 5 minutes from La Fortuna. The project has a trail of 1,500 meters suitable for adults, families and children of all ages. We will make a tour of approximately 2 hours. You will see a lot of plants, a river bordering the property and of course the trees of Guarúmo, the favorite food of the most emblematic animal of our tropical forest. During the tour you will learn about the importance of the protection of sloths in Costa Rica. Their growing popularity has made illegal trade increase so this family has managed to preserve a privileged space for their protection.
The journey continues: you will take a short 30-minute drive to a small town called La Tigra, where you will find Los Toños Family Farm. Once you arrive there, you will learn about the lifestyle of a Costa Rican farm family: about their customs, traditions, and daily routine of taking care of their farm. Agriculture is an important part of their life and you’ll have the privilege to tour the property and the plantations of products like black pepper, vanilla, yucca, coffee, banana, corn, and many other specific crops. Once again, you will get into the forest, a small patch of rainforest in the process of regeneration, where you will discover many interesting species of plants and trees. Finally, before returning to La Fortuna in the late afternoon, you will enjoy a delicious lunch made of fresh products from the farm, prepared on a wood burning stove for the most authentic Costa Rican flavor.
