Mothers Day in Costa Rica is quite an event. This year it falls on Tuesday the 15th of August but because of the day of the week that it falls on, the day of celebration is Monday the 21st of August.
All of the federal offices, banks and many businesses close for this tribute to the mothers. Mothers are seen as saints in Costa Rica thus the big holiday. Because of the 3 day weekend, everyone will be taking off for the beach but will be taking their mothers along to celebrate her day. If your considering taking a trip to the beach, this weekend might not be the time to go as traffic is going to be horrible both coming and going and most of the hotels will already be booked up if you haven’t already made your reservations.
Enjoy your mothers day, and make sure that your special mother knows that she is appreciated and loved.
