Aviarios del Carib Sloth Rescue

Penshurt, Costa Rica

©Sue & Ray, Toucan Maps

The story of the name Aviarios del Carib (Caribbean Aviary) is interesting. Although the property is home to incredible bird life, the main focus is on sloths.

\"When the 1991 Limón earthquake shook our home to the ground, we rebuilt it as a small hotel. We offered tours of our rain forest home and island, showcasing over 3oo of the 850 bird species found in Costa Rica. We were delighted with our new life as proprietors of a lovely little Boutique Hotel in the midst of our own piece of paradise. Our destiny was completely and irrevocably changed in 1992 when three neighbor girls brought us a wee surprise – an orphaned, three-fingered sloth.\"

They named her Buttercup and she still hangs out in the visitors center.
