Our tour guide was phenomenal; very positive and informative!
The guide was very knowledgeable and good at finding the animals. It was easy transportation and very accessible.
Unbelievable! We saw 13 sloths!! And 2 babies. Just amazing experience--tourguide was fantastic.
We saw lots of sloths!
We managed to see eight sloths, including one baby. Mercedes and the driver (Luis?) were fabulous.
Unforgettable! Our guide was as excited as we were!
Big surprise on this one. Very worth doing. I was dubious about riding in a van to find sloths but it was SO fun and you get out a lot to see them. If you don't do the tour, you are simply not gauranteed to see sloths in Costa Rica. They are hard to spot. That said, we saw them with a baby, climbing. It was amazing. The place they bring you after for empanadas and fruit is so quaint as well. It's a really great excursion. I was really pleasantly surprised.
Our guide was called Hawkeye for a reason. She spotted the sloths.
I loved this tour. We spotted 10 sloths, two toucans, and a Jesus Christ lizard! We had an excellent guide who was extremely knowledgeable and explained the nature and behavior of sloths
We enjoyed our tour even though we weren't able to get to one of the places as planned due to not being able to cross a road that had been washed out by the rain from the day prior. Our guides were flexible and took us around the town and we still saw lots of sloths. The breakfast was delicious!
Saw lots of sloths-fantastic
Saw a variety of sloths, snack at the restaurant was good, fun tour!
The knowledge of the guides (Edson and Andres) was remarkable and so was the visual with the spotting scope.
The tour was great, I was expecting a little more out in the wild than in town areas, still we were happy.
Unfortunately it had rained the night before so didn’t see as many sloths and toucans as they say they usually do but no fault of your operators. They tried. Breakfast after tour was delicious and we saw beautiful motmots there
Another excellent tour also run by Arenal Oasis. We saw and photographed lots of sloths as well as many birds including three types of Toucan and a huge iguana. Highly recommended!
Guides were fabulous and very knowledgable!
We had a good time and saw a lot of animals.
Not a great tour because the sloths were not particularly active or visible up close. Not the fault of the guide whi tried very hard to find active sloths. Knowledgeable guide.
The tour guides were informative and gave us lots of photo opportunities .They showed us a variety of toucans, a few three-toed sloths, and a howler monkey with an albino baby. They also coordinated around the rain very well. My only disappointment about the sloth tour is that the tour guide mentioned going to see some two-toed sloths at the end of the tour but then dropped off at the hotel instead. I wish it had been communicated why we didn't get to see the two-toed sloth.
We did get to see sloths!
Luis and Trino were very good. We saw many sloths and felt it was very worthwhile
Great guides that took us around town and we got to see several sloths as well as howler monkeys and various birds
I hoped to see more sloths from close by but there is not much you can do about it
The guide and driver had the eye and knowledge of the area! We quickly located a Mom and baby low to the ground, she climbed right in front of us. We not only saw our sloth, but monkeys and many exotic birds! They stopped, set up cameras and helped us capture the experience.
The guides were great but the tour was very disjointed. We saw a few sloths and stayed for a long time just looking at them. Not really a tour.
We had a great time on the Sloth Tour. We where able to see 9 different sloths. And we where able to get some really good pictures.
Loved the tour!
What a great way to start your day! Got to see the area and sloths. Also saw some beautiful birds, iguanas and frogs! Marcus was the guide he was a lot of fun. He definitely loves his job. We had a nice breakfast afterwards
We saw 6 sloths, a keel-billed toucan, a hawk and even howler monkeys!
Jaime was amazing at talking to us and giving us so much information about sloths and Toucans. I can’t believe they spot those sloths in the trees like they do! It was so much fun.
Amazing. Saw sloths and toucans too!
Unfortunately it rained very hard so there’s nothing we could do about that. The guides were knowledgeable and kind. I was expecting to see sloths a little closer but they really couldn’t be seen without telescopes.
Loved the guide!
Tour guide was great and the experience was great. Very happy.
The breakfast after the tour was a huge surprize, loved having a wonderfully cook breakfast with the birds within a few feet of us!
We enjoyed the Sloth Tour immensely. Our guide and driver were excellent! They found many opportunities for us to observe sloths, toucans and a poisonous frog. We appreciated their setting up a scope so that we could take great pictures with our cell phones. Not only were they very informative, but their enthusiasm was awesome.
Isaac was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our guide found lots of sloths as well as toucans near an active papaya farm, the snack at the end of the tour was nice
We initially thought this would be a hiking tour rather than being taken around in a minivan but we did get to see many sloths!
Francisco & Alvaro were awesome, and we saw so many sloths, even a mother with her baby!
Both the tour guide and the driver went out of their way to check for sloths in all known locations. We saw 5 sloths (one two toed sloth, rest three toed), a Blue Jeans poison dart frog, a howler money and stopped for coffee and a snack at the cutest B & B. The people who owned the property where the sloths were located were very kind in letting us walk over to where they were. On the way home, the driver went by the street where the Toucans are often spotted and we saw two yellow billed toucans. The tour was nicely paced and they were very kind and made sure I got great photos.
It was really hot this day which is unavoidable
Would have liked to see more wildlife. Lunch in the forest was wonderful.
Would it be possible to get closer to the sloths?
These guys were awesome
We saw sloths, birds, and frogs. This was exactly what was promised. It was a nice tour and the guides were great. We also really enjoyed the setting of the breakfast after the sloth tour.
Even though it rained we saw many sloths! The staff really took their time to make sure everyone got a good view and as many pictures as they wanted. They even had umbrellas for everyone. Our snack was delicious too!
Far exceeded expectations. I will never forget this tour!!!
fabulous tour! our favorite
We were very fortunate to see a sloth with a baby .
We didn't realise at first that this is a drive tour rather than a walking one. The first stop was a bit underwhelming -- roadside scrub. But the second was much better and there were good sightings of three sloths. Also enjoyed seeing the blue jeans frog. The advice from PTW was that 'snacks' were included, but this does actually include a full breakfast afterwards -- we recommend you update the advice so that people realise that this is better value for money than it looks.
The guides were great. Really liked them. The first area they took us wasn't as exotic as we expected. Felt like we just pulled over on side of road and walked into some woods. But we did see sloths and blue jean frog. Last place they took us for a snack was cool and food was good.
We got 8 sloths including a two-toed and a baby! Great job by the guides.
Guides were exceptional
My #1 goal for this trip was to see a sloth. Not only did we see several, we saw one very low in a tree awake and eating breakfast.
rained all tour long, but the tour company did the best they could with the weather being so bad, anyway great tour
If you definitely want to see Sloth in Arenal area, you should definitely do this tour (we also did a combo tour that combined 4 totally different other locations and did not see Sloth at any other location even though we had great guide, so if not for this tour we would have missed out on seeing Sloth in Arenal area, though eventually we saw many more and closer sloth in Manuel Antonio area).
We saw plenty of sloths and birds. Nice morning was had by all.
So boring. If the guide didn’t have a scope we would not have seen a thing.
The guides had a great personality, helped us take pictures, and were very knowledgeable about the sloths. the Arenal Oasis stop at teh end was a very nice bonus with the food which was delicious and the lazy bird watching.
Loved that it was a small group and that the guide had the high-powered scope for us to take pictures. Otherwise, they would have been just dots up in the trees.
The best tour we did!
This one turned out great!
Great guide. They did their best to show and find sloths. To our surprise the tour also included bird watching as well as coffee and food!
Oscar and Ramo were excellent guides, very personable and knowledgeable! My favorite tour from our visit to Costa Rica! Loved stopping at the restaurant to see all the birds!! We told everyone we met in Costa Rica how great our tour was and will continue to tell friends and family back in the US!
The team worked really hard to see sloths!
Oscar and his driver (Alejandro?) were great. Saw lots of sloths, lots of birds. 2 species of toucan made up for none at the waterfall. All of the birds at the bird feeding / snack stop were great.
