Aviarios Sloth Sanctuary was created by Judy and Luis Arroyo in 1992 by dedicating their once boutique hotel to a rehabilitation for sloths. It all started when a group of young girls brought Buttercup, an injured three-fingered sloth, to the Arroyos. Much of their knowledge about sloths was obtained through self-experience, as Buttercup was the first of many to come to their hotel. The transformation of the hotel came about as more and more sloths came to their doors. The sloths are brought here because they have special needs due to a wide range of reasons, most of which stem from mankind's encroachment into their habitat. Through study and observation, most of the sloths are on the right path to recovery.
