Our day starts with a 8.5 kilometers (around 5 miles) drive from downtown Puerto Viejo to Punta Uva. Punta Uva serves as a favorite among visitors. It’s a small town that has stunning beaches, wildlife, a quiet atmosphere and beautiful viewpoints. You will be walking the jungle trails and beaches with a professional guide visiting a amazing viewpoint. You will learn about history, culture, plants and wildlife while searching for a sloth out in the wild. The Caribbean Jungle is home to more than 300 bird species, big blue butterflies, interesting insects and other animals like poison dart frogs, iguanas, snakes, sloths, armadillos, several species of monkeys among others. We believe every animal is a important part of an ecosystem and that they don't belong behind a fence for human show. So the best way to support the sustainability is by ecotourism activities like this one. When we finish our hike, we’ll be ready for a refreshing swim in the emerald green beach and snap some pictures. After we are satisfied of a few hours of fun we will head back.

This tour is in search of wildlife so there's a possibility that we might not see what we are out to find. The sloths are not in cages and move around freely on this beach and sometimes but hardly ever just don't want to be seen. TRANSPORTATION TO PUNA UVA IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.
