Sarapiquí Stories

August 14, 2012

The community of San Ramón is hosting a traditional fiesta from Aug. 25-Sept. 3 Sept. This fun and traditional event is organized by the local Junta de Desarrollo.

Come experience culture, food and beautiful scenery. Sample traditional dishes such as tamales and picadillos (a spicy dish of ground meat and vegetables) and experience traditional bull rides, topes (horse parades), rodeos and Latin dancing. 

San Ramón is a quaint little town located close to La Virgen de Sarapiquí, where you can take advantage of the local tours, hotels and a nature sanctuary.
