Visiting our Sloth Adventure Tour
Prices are $15 dollar per person
We are a small scale family run eco-tourism project set on an organic farm, located in the northern rainforests of Costa Rica. Over the past 20 years we have converted our land into an eco-paradise.
Our aim is to create a sustainable and viable approach to organic farming and protection of Natural resources, which safe guards and promotes nature in its natural and most healthy form. We promote zero chemical use as a needed alternative and seek to continually develop our land and project responsibly. In short we have a beautiful thriving tropical farm nestled into the valley of two volcanoes in the rain forest.
As a result through our work we have created a heaven for the sloths and their reproduction.
In Our tour you will be taken on an inspiring and educational walk, showcasing natural wonders such as tropical plants and flowers, birds, frogs, snakes, monkeys, insects and many more animals that inhabit our farm. You will see and learn about the life cycle of butterflies, and learn everything about the sloth life and metabolism.

In addition to the colorful attraction of the water, the river also has several thermal hot springs and a large waterfall.
The Río Celeste park’s entranceis about 15 minutes drive from Finca Verde Lodge and then it takes about an hour to hike to the Río Celeste Waterfall.
What to Bring: Light clothing, bug repellent, raincoat, a camera and binoculars.
Waterfall Llanos de Cortez
Llanos del Cortez is a breathtaking and remote waterfall, most commonly enjoyed as a refreshing retreat by locals and the occasional touris
Since it is not in the national park, there is no entrance fee but you will be stopped and asked to give a donation to the local school. During high season, it might be mandatory (one of our friends had to pay $10 to enter) so depending on when you visit, you can just give 1000-2000 colones ($2-$4) or as much as you want.
What to Bring: bating suit, bug repellent, sun block, a camera and binoculars.
