Sloth Kong Takes over Juan Santamaría Airport

673SLOTH_ESPQCOSTARICA – Sloth Kong has taken over Juan Santamaria International Airport (San José airport – SJO) to wish our visitors a good trip home – and a quick return – after their stays in Costa Rica.

Once passengers have checked their bags,  they are encouraged to take a photo with Sloth Kong and share it with the world on Facebook (www.facebook.com/slothkong) with the hashtag #SlothKong.

Every month, the most original photo will be chosen and US$100 will be donated on behalf of the winner to a social welfare program or institution for needy children.

The fictional character was created during the collective euphoria of Costa Rica’s historic run in the 2014 World Cup, and his antics were published in The Tico Times (www.ticotimes.net).

As the national soccer team’s legend grew, so did Sloth Kong.
