  • We did the sloth feeding. What a great experience. Allie was a great guide. The sloths are well taken care of and are amazing animals. We went in winter and didn't find it that hot. I also didn't thin...  more »

  • Once in a lifetime experience! If I could I would go back every day! To get to experience sloths up close without harming them or their habitat, and knowing we can contribute to their survival, just amazing. I highly recommend to anyone who might be in the vicinity. Definitely a hidden gem!
  • This was an AMAZING experience!!! We did the Sloth Sleepover and Allie was our tour guide. Allie was very knowledgeable, friendly, and genuinely cared about the animals and our experience. She answered every question we had and was very tentative to both the guests and the sloths. Feeding and petting the sloths was a very neat experience. They come to you if they wanted food and left us alone if they didn't. There were 10 sloths in the room with us the entire night. The beds were actually pretty comfortable, although sloths like warm temperatures, so obviously it could get a little stuffy in the tents. While sleeping, it is mandatory to keep the tent screens closed so the sloths don't accidentally end up in the tent. In the morning, we had our Mystery guests, (Spolier: ours was two baby lemurs). We were asked to put on long sleeves and pants for this portion. I would highly recommend to any fellow sloth and animal lovers out there.
  • I would give it more if I could! Sloths are my all-time favourite aminals, and it was so wonderful to see that the volunteers there had the same passion. On top of their passion, they were friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgable!
  • This place is a complete JOKE! I pulled into the driveway at exactly 12:50 and the gate was NOT open. We drove by every minute waiting for the gate to open and never saw it open. Not once. We waited and drove by OVER AND OVER AGAIN. The instructions say DO NOT block the driveway and to NOT park across the street. Says DO NOT use the call button. The gate has a huge signs that says DO NOT block the gate. The instructions say that if they are running late they will open the gate when ready and to DRIVE AROUND AND SEE SIGHTS and WAIT for the gate to open. The GATE never opened and there is no number to call. The service is absolutely unbelievable and I will tell absolutely EVERYONE not to attempt to come here EVER. We waited for over 25 minutes and then were told that since they didn't "see us" we wouldn't be allowed in. This place is TERRIBLE.
  • So we showed up early as was stated on the website and email the gates never opened. The gate has signs to not block or use the call botton. And the website and email says the same and to drive around and wait we checked the gate ever minute to see it open never did finally frustrated we hit the call button. Once awnsered the person on the other side was very rude about use being late. Even though we where early
