Great tour with our fantastic and knowledgeable guide Alex. We saw 6 sloths and 2 varieties of sloths, strawberry blue jean frogs, lizards and birds. The tour had been there highlight so far in Costa Rica. We finished the tour with a freshly cut pineapple. We absolutely recommend having a guide it would be nearly impossible to find the animals on your own and their knowledge is amazing.

Really nice to walk around and look for sloths. It was still dry season so we didn't see any frogs. We saw a young male sloth moving which is rare to see. We spend about 1 1/2 hours there enjoying the nature. There are some tour guides walking around which was nice to talk too. They were friendly and helpful. Also the fresh cut pineapple on the way out was a nice touch!

Excellent tour lead by Eduardo - he was leader of our small group of 5 - took the time to let us all see the sloths as well as take photos- even took a small break from the heat 1/2 way thru and took some photos of Arenal from the viewpoint along the tour-
We saw many sloths and a poison dart frog as well !!

Great place. U can go as many times as u want. Very laid back. We saw a bunch of cool things. I didn’t pay for a guide but I did tip them for the things I was able to see. We went a bunch of times.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

I did a tour with Alex, only 5 of us in the group. We saw so much! 2 and 3 toed sloths, (mum & baby, juveniles and adults) dart frog, bullet any, owls, toucans and more. Alex Was an amazing guide, very patient with the children in the group, knowledgeable, friendly and above all great eyes for spotting everything!! I would never have seen so much (or maybe anything!) without him as everything has incredible camouflage.

I went on the 8am tour and this was a great time - everything waking up and moving around before the day got too hot.

Your ticket is also valid for the whole day so you can come back any time if you want to try it at different times of the day.

The paths are level, well kept, suitable for buggies and they're even planning to get a specially adapted wheelchair to make it even more accessible.

Best tour I've done in all my travels, definitely worth the extra.

I cannot recommend this enough! Our guide, William was passionate, knowledgeable and so engaging. My sister and I had the BEST experience. We never would have spotted the sloths 🦥 and many other amazing creatures had we not done the guided tour. Well worth it!

This is a fantastic place to visit, easy to find right in La Fortuna. For maximum experience, do a guided tour or you will miss a lot, especially the sloths who can be hidden in plain sight. I recommend the earliest time slot as some wildlife is more active then. We were fortunate to have the original founder Giovanni, who told us amazing stories about Bogarin’s history, as our guide. This place started as a dream and in 22 years grew from farmland into an amazing piece of rainforest filled with birds, sloths, frogs, lizards. We saw all of these! Some of the birds were quite unusual like the green ibis, boat-billed heron and white-collared manakin. Would visit again if returning to Costa Rica. Good for all ages.

One of our favorite activities while visiting Costa Rica. Our guide pointed out animals we would have never seen on our own including sloths, poisonous frogs, toucans and bats. The passion and love he has for Costa Rica and it's nature was evident in the information he shared and making sure all on the tour saw it's beauty. He also took wonderful pictures and videos on our phones so we could bring the memories back with us. Highly recommend this tour.
