We had a wonderful experience here. Guide Alex was so kind and could show us so much. The first day it was raining to much, but he invited us back the next morning. This time the weather was perfect. We saw many sloths, birds, including an owl, frogs and even a fer de lance snake. The atmosphere was really great, and we would definitely recommend.

Absolute highlight of my trip. Tucked away just a few minutes from the town this place is a must for nature lovers. In myb2 hour guided visit we saw 7 sloths? Loads of birds, snakes, frogs, agouti and various insects. The guides are so kind and knowledgeable 100% worth paying the extra as they take time to point out everything and carry a scope for close up viewing.
Everyone visiting the area MUST visit this place and allow a good 3 hours to do the tour and have time to enjoy the wildlife by the reception area.

We took a 9 mo old on this tour and had an extraordinary experience. We passed him back and forth as we looked through the scope to see 8! sloths. We also saw frogs! Really enjoyed the tour guide as he told us interesting facts. Good walking shoes are required! An umbrella was useful! Enjoyed sliced pineapple at the end. There were opportunities to photograph birds as well. We washed up at the sink near the entrance.

We visited on a morning that started out with heavy rain. Our guide, Alex, provided umbrellas in addition to the rain ponchos we brought. Throughout the tour, Alex was patient, enthusiastic, and made sure we each got a good look at the sloths through his scope. He even took photos and videos with our phones through his scope. We saw several sloths, including a very big and “active” male and a mama with her baby. On our first pass while it was still raining, the sloths were huddled up and sleeping so Alex made sure to take us back near the end of the tour so that we could see them awake. We also saw several tiny strawberry dart frogs and a family of little armadillos. Alex is very knowledgeable and obviously loves his work and wants to make sure everyone enjoys the experience. I highly recommend this easily accessible tour!

We decided to visit the Boragin Sloth trail because we really wanted to see sloths. We decided to pay an extra $15 per person to have a tour guide and it was money well spent. I can't imagine actually finding any sloths or other animals without a guide. Eduardo, who is one of three brothers who own the land, was out guide. He was very knowledgable and we spotted 6 sloths! He would even put our phones and cameras up to the scope to get close up pictures. Great experience all around!

This was the only place we saw sloths during our two weeks in CR. Tons of poison dart frogs as well. We did not pay extra for guide and are happy with that decision as we saw so much. Definitely recommend.

Best sloth tour ever!!!!
Our guide-Alex is really patience,kind and full of knowledge about all kinds of animals, plants and frogs!

We found 8 sloths today!!!! 1 male, 2 babies and 5 females!
Besides that, we saw a porcupine sleeping right in front us!! Just one feet long, and i can see his closed eye!!!

Really like the stories and all kind of knowledge behind the animals which Alex told us!

It was reaaaaally awesome! If you go to La Fortuna, you should not miss Bogarin Trail!!

真的是超級棒的樹懶體驗!!
我們的導遊Alex,人超級體貼耐心又博學多聞!

這次導覽我們居然發現8只樹懶!1只公的,2個寶寶,剩下5個都是母樹懶!!非常的幸運!!除此之外,我們還看到豪豬就在我們一公尺前的樹梢上休息!我都可以看到他緊閉的雙眼!看到其他十幾種動物!而且導遊都會細細說明背後的故事,很印象深刻就是公樹懶打架求偶,穿牛仔褲的紅蛙是最強母親等等有趣故事!!
如果來la Fortuna,務必不要錯過這個tour!!然後Alex超棒的♥️

We went on a morning guided tour with Edwardo Bogarin. He is one of 9 of the Bogarin brothers. Many work there and grew this trail over the past 20 years. While you can walk the trail without a guide, there is no way you could see half of the things we saw without a guide that knows where to look. We saw snakes, toucans, frogs, insects and of course so many sloths. The history of the trail and these animals in the history of Costa Rica was very interesting. Worth it for a guided tour!
