Cute and cuddly sloths of the Caribbean Costa Rica have been in the spotlight since last year’s program “Meet the Sloths” aired on Animal Planet. The two-hour special program will run again on June 21 at 8:00 a.m. EST. The story follows a year in the lives of five sloths at the Sloth Sanctuary.


Located on the Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica, just south of Limon on the way to Puerto Viejo, the Sloth Sanctuary rescues, protects and rehabilitates sloths. You can see sloths in person on a sloth tour.


“Sloth Week” will show six days of sloth-related Web content, sloth facts, the most adorable and interesting sloth videos and live cams. “So much sloth greatness, we gave them their own week,” reports Animal Planet.

You can visit the Sloth Sanctuary on a fun half-day tour. Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday), tours start at 8:00 a.m. and go every hour on the hour; the last tour is at 2:00 p.m.

The vibrant Costa Rica boutique hotel fronts the dazzling, turquoise Caribbean Sea and golden sand of Playa Cocles – one of the area’s most beautiful beaches. Hip, modern and upscale, Le Caméléon features ultra-chic rooms, beautiful tropical architecture, and lush jungle gardens. The elegant Le Numu Restaurant & Bar is one of the area’s top restaurants; and the newly remodeled La Sula Sea Lounge beach club is the place to hang out by the shore and meet friends for a cool drink or a light meal.
