The thing is, I know these are tours are things you guys do daily over and over again. But the experience is new for us tourists. Everyone involved in our day made us feel like they were just as excited as us and that touch is what makes all the difference. Thank you so much for an awesome experience!
When we were planning our trip to Roatan, I looked into some of the more ‘mainstream’ sloth experiences and planned to go to a different sanctuary. But after we arrived, a couple that knew the area well recommended Manawakie. They said it was a smaller, family run place and it included a tour of native medicinal plants. I love ethnobotanist so I was on board.
Teddy was a fantastic tour guide! We learned a lot about native plants, but we also got to hold a giant macaw and some monkeys (we’ll actually, the monkeys played on us like we were a jungle gym but it was spectacular!). Then came the sloths…
Since the park was relatively empty, we got much more sloth time than I had even dared to hope for. I think I wound up holding Speedy for about 30 minutes as we chatted with the sloth handler. It was every bit as magical as I thought it would be.
We bought a package island & mangrove tunnel tour, so that filled our afternoon. Our driver was very accommodating and even dropped us off at our next rental.
I recommend Manawakie above all the other sloth experiences on the island!
The guide provides a lot of interesting information about the local culture and the animals. Fun trip for young kids and adults
