You’ll walk along the hiking trails for about 1 mile (1.5 km) in the Sloth Territory. Your guide is an expert at spotting sloths, which are naturally quite reclusive. Look to the treetops to spot them napping as they hang from the branches.

You'll also get a visit to an agro-ecological site called Campesino, in the small town of Agua Azul which is just outside of La Fortuna. Come here to see how Costa Rican farmers are making strides in sustainable agriculture. You’ll also get to experience warm, Costa Rican hospitality as you sample fruit, chocolate, and fresh milk. When you first arrive, your hosts will offer you fresh fruit juice. As you sip, your guide will introduce you to the farm’s main objective.

Next, it’s time for some hands-on farm experience when you learn to milk the cows. Kids can step right up, because children are welcome to try out this part of a working farm. You'll also get to feed chickens and baby animals. Try out a sugar cane extraction and have a sip of the deliciously sweet juice. You’ll also get to try the juice combined with spearmint or liquor. Keep sampling on the next portion of the tour — chocolate! This farm comes with an archeological ranch where you can see unearthed pieces of ceramics used to make a traditional chocolate product. You’ll see cocoa in its natural state — an oblong, yellow pod.

At the end of the tour, you can stroll through the grounds to see orchids and medicinal plants. Wrap up your tour with snacks like coffee, cheese, tortillas, and other homemade treats. While you're here, you'll get to know locals and everyday life on a Costa Rican farm.
