Sloths sleep for nearly 20 hours a day so if you get the chance to roll up on some not sleeping, consider yourself extremely lucky or simply blessed! After reading through the Bodhi Bible (a book of tourist information from the Bodhi Hostel) we saw a picture of a lady holding a sloth under the title SLOTH SANCTUARY. While most people might geek out on the opportunity to hug these lovely creatures, we came into El Valle de Anton thinking about birding (that’s was our first thoughts), not sloths. Sloths were a very pleasant surprise. You can’t just knock on the Casa Mariposa door and ask to see the sloths. We we’re fortunate as I remembered to ask the reception to see if the lazy beasts were awake. 45 seconds later I was informed by staff that the sloths were up and about. Perfect timing Allan encouraged us to get up and go, pointing out a structure a couple hundred meters down the road from the hostel and with a bounce, we were on our way with huge smiles and lots of excitement. We we’re welcomed by Ursula and her black Labrador.
