Listen to the Story.

15-year-old California teenager Cosette Madeleine will travel this summer with her family to visit a sloth sanctuary in Central America.

Can you name the Central American nation where she's headed?

It borders Nicaragua to the north, as well as the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, and it's a country that's worked hard to attract eco-tourists.

The answer is Costa Rica.

Teenager Cosette Madeleine who describes herself as a sloth aficionado can hardly wait to travel to Costa Rica with her parents.
