Puerto Limon
Sloth Sanctuary Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Very hot day so be sure to bring water. We visited the nursery, the adults, did a canoe ride and a jungle walk and then enjoyed fresh fruit and the gift shop. Very strange animals, but completely docile and adorable. We got to see exotic birds as well as frogs.

Cartagena's Cathedral Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Met us right at the pier. The van was airconditioned and the driver was excellent and watched our belongings left on the van. La Popa Monastery was my favorite. Beautiful courtyard. Be prepared for about 3 miles of walking on the ciyt tour in old town. We stopped in several cathedrals, the dungeons for shopping and also visited the new town shops. Street vendors are hard to ignore, just don't make eye contact. Dora gave us a lot of history and is very proud of her country.
