Whether you're a cat or dog person – or somewhere in between – it's hard to find someone who isn't captivated by the world's magnificent wildlife. For a romantic getaway with a difference, we've tracked down ten amazing adventures for animal-loving couples.

From sloths to polar bears, gorillas to whales, there's an animal encounter out there for everyone. So come on, let's go on an adventure!

See the sloths at Sloth Sanctuary of Costa Rica

Limón, Costa Rica

From t-shirts and memes to the latest children's blockbuster, sloths have well and truly taken over pop culture. Fascinating and utterly adorable in their own special way, the slow-paced species is truly awe-inspiring and seems to put a smile on absolutely everyone's face. At Sloth Sanctuary Costa Rica, you'll see these loveable creatures on a guided tour and enjoy an exciting shallow river canoe trip to watch them in their natural rainforest habitat. *Writer's note: This would be a personal dream come true. 

For a holiday that's impossible to forget, the four hour Insider's Tour includes a breakfast or lunch on the dock before seeing the sloths at play – or more likely, asleep. Make sure you top it all off when you spend a night at the Buttercup Inn. Built on the property, the hotel is available for bookings only in conjunction with the Insider's Tour.
