About this photo
Visible only by its distinctive claws gripping the tree branch, a Costa Rican sloth traverses its jungle habitat. One of the Central American country's most iconic creatures, two- and three-toed sloths can be spotted on treks into the tropical forest that is so well-protected here.
Go in search of sloths, as well as birds, reptiles, monkeys and more on Insight Guides' Costa Rica's Wild South trip, which ventures into a variety of national parks, including Quetzales, Hatillo Mangrove Forest and Corcovado.
