ICYMI: Costa Rica’s colorful long weekend

September 18, 2017

We’ve got a stronger-than-usual case of the Mondays this week as the country returns from a long Independence Day weekend. In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite moments from the festivities:

  • Get an inside look at a particularly lovely Independence Day parade in Santo Domingo de Heredia.
  • Check out the celebrations on Independence Eve in downtown Limón.
  • Meet five extraordinary women who became Ticas during the past year, including our First Lady.
  • And watch our video celebrating Costa Rica’s National Anthem, with English translation of the lyrics. We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Now it’s back to work; good thing we’ve got the world’s best coffee on hand.
