The sloth, which inhabits trees across Costa Rica, may be the slowest mammal on Earth, but its adorable appearance, relaxed personality, and enviable sedentary lifestyle have won the affection of thousands of people in Costa Rica and around the world - in other words, sloths have become the Internet’s new spirit animal. For this reason, the Costa Rica Tourism Board has called on the sloth to save overworked and under-vacationed Americans by inviting them to Costa Rica, the perfect human sanctuary for those suffering from vacation deprivation.

In an effort to solidify its commitment to the environment, Costa Rica, home to five percent of the world’s biodiversity, has developed a National Climate Strategy that aims to make the country completely carbon-neutral by 2100.

With more Americans taking fewer, shorter vacations a year, the Central American nation of Costa Rica – known for its natural wonders, colorful culture and friendly locals – offers travelers an ideal destination for a quick getaway. Roughly the size of West Virginia, visitors can take advantage of the country’s small size to explore numerous opportunities for adventure and relaxation.
