Bijagua Sloth Search and Discovery
Experience one of Guanacaste’s greatest natural wonders: sloths in their native habitat. Driving from the lowlands of Guanacaste, at the base of majestic active volcanoes, snaking between the giant Miravalles and Tenorio volcanos, you will cross the continental divide and enter into Bijagua. Bijagua means “two waters” and is named after the influence of the climate and the rain on the area. This is a nature hikers' paradise, replete with the biodiversity for which Costa Rica is famous. And, of course, sloths abound. They're everywhere, hanging from the trees and branches, always "smiling." Usually, mothers will be carrying their babies. Bijagua also provides the perfect climate and rainforest environment for you to come upon exotic reptiles and frogs, like the Red Eyed Frog, Green-and-Black Poison Arrow Frog, Blue Jeans Frog, and many other examples of tropical wildlife, as well including a number of species of birds. For wildlife lovers, put this on your “Must-Do” list while visiting Costa Rica. Did you know that Sloths spend 90% of their time upside down?
