Singing animals lure overworked Americans to Costa Rica beaches


beach_maniac_blog_100pxWhich is more of a jungle – the lush tropical woods of Costa Rica or the stressful concrete jungle of the Big City in the United States? Costa Rica tourism officials pose that very question in a clever and entertaining new video with singing sloths, turtles and parrots.

Using the catchy tune from the classic The Lion Sleeps Tonight, the video is part of a campaign titled Save the Americans, designed to bring Americans to the relaxing jungles and beaches of Costa Rica.
