Get to know a bit more about Antonio:
- Our sloth is named Antonio in honor of Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, which is home to thousands of sloths and is a national symbol in this country.
- Antonio has been part of our team since 2015 and has sold 36,000 units in 10 different countries across Latin America.
- Our design team, in collaboration with the supplier, successfully understood the dimensions and characteristics of the sloth for its production and had it in our stores in record time.
- Our Antonio has evolved to have a presence as an animatronic in the International airports of San José and Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
Furthermore, Morpho Travel Experience has had a partnership with the Toucan Rescue Ranch Foundation since 2017, where we have contributed with medical equipment and volunteer work to support the conservation of this species.
