It’s true, the Sloth Rescue Center (Aviarios Del Caribe), is the only center of its kind and you can find it in Costa Rica. No where else on earth will you find a place that focuses on saving and rehabilitating sloths.

Fifteen years ago, the lovely couple that owns this eco-farm was given a baby sloth that was so hurt it could never be released back into the wild. Its name is Buttercup, and it is still here for everyone to enjoy. After that fateful day, when Buttercup came into their lives, the owners have opened their doors to more sloths. Today there are over 75 sloths, and that number is growing each day.
The best part is not only the love and care that has been put into this amazing place by the owners, but also all the volunteers that come to learn about and help with the sloth population.
This is such a great place to visit for families and adults! You’ll learn so much about this gentle, adorable animal that you will leave simply feeling good about mankind.
Please help out this super worthy cause Buttercup Foundation.
