The original plan was to go to the Sloth Sanctuary. But it was nearly 5 hours from San Jose and not in the direction of any of the other sites. That sent me on a crazy Google search to find another place with sloths because that was our dream too. I ran across this nonprofit Toucan Rescue Ranch.
The hours on the site says that it runs from 9 am to 2 pm. But it actually means that they only have a tour at 9 am and 2 pm. We learned that the hard way by showing up. And having to explore for 3 hours before the 2 pm one.
The rescue ranch was started by a lady named Leslie and her husband. On the ranch are macaws, owls, monkeys, sloths, porcupines and lots of other animals.
It is about 1 hr from San Jose and definitely worth the trip if you want to see sloths!
