GUMBALIMBA PARK AND CANOPY ZIP LINE


Recommended Posts

Here are the reviews from Trip Advisor.  They do appear to have sloths. I did a cursory look through the photos (although I didn't look at all 1,000+ of them) and didn't see anyone holding any sloths.  Macaws and Capuchin Monkeys, yes, but no sloths.  As a retired zoo keeper, working with exotics for nearly 20 years, I don't really think this is a bad thing, though.  Not all animals are suited to being passed around all day by humans - it can be very stressful for them (I know, a lot of places do it - doesn't mean it's a great idea).  It looks like a fun place - I'm kind of jealous!  I might have to take a look at this place for when I visit Roatan (minus the zip line).

Thanks.. That is what I saw too. I know that Honduras is their natural habitat... so figures crossed I get to see one.. I dont need to hold one- I just want to get a good pic of one for my daughter.. I dont care if it is in a tree or I am standing next to it.  🙂

If I remember, I will try to reply to this post and let you know how it was. My cruise is in March... Cant wait!!
