Sloth Central

By Linda Tancs

The sleepy surf of Costa Rica’s Caribbean side may seem like an unlikely place for a rescue center for the native sloth, but three miles north of Cahuita lies the world’s only sloth rescue center, Aviarios del Caribe.  The learning center and sanctuary is home to special adult resident sloths named Millie, Toyota, Spiderman, Einstein, Nala and TopoGigio.  The sanctuary offers visitors the opportunity to sleep with the sloths (well, kind of) via a small hotel on the premises.  Just one more way to get up close and personal with the natives.
