What to expect
About the Congo Trail Monkey Sanctuary: Orphaned baby monkeys are not always adopted by another family of monkeys but if they are found in time they are brought here. They usually haven’t developed the skills to survive in the wild so the Monkey Sanctuary becomes their permanent home. Here you will be able to visit with a couple different species of monkeys including the famous Howler Monkey. You are able to feed these amazing animals. The Monkey Sanctuary rescues more than just monkeys. There is a petting zoo with sheep, horses, and a bull!
After the Monkey Sanctuary, follow our guide to the amazing Sloth Refuge. Our guided tour will take you on an adventure of a lifetime as you explore the back roads and trails by UTV. Potholes and dirt trails are handled with ease as you make your way to the sloth refuge.
Nestled in the foothills of Guanacaste lies Diamante Eco Adventure Park, home to the only Sloth rescue refuge in the area. Known for their wildlife rescue work, Diamante rehabilitates injured, orphaned or confiscated wildlife at their state of the art facility in Playa Matapalo. A visit to Diamante’s animal sanctuary will not only bring you face to face with a family of Two-Toed Sloths but also White-faced Capuchin monkeys, Toucans, Spider Monkeys, Marmosets, Gray Foxes, Crocodiles, Caimans, Turtles, Iguanas, Butterflies, Frogs, Parrots, Small birds, Wild Turkeys, Snakes and more…such as our jungle cats — Ocelots, Jaguars, Margays and Pumas.
Once you have seen the wildlife, jump back in and drive your off-road UTV back down to sea level where you will visit 3 different beaches and have opportunities to swim, snorkel or just relax. Your guide will show you the best spots and points of interest and take pictures for you along the way. By the end of your tour, you will have plenty of fun pictures to share with your friends and memories to last a lifetime.
