Guanacaste Day

This year the celebration of Guanacaste Day was put off from July 25 to Monday the 31st so that Costa Ricans could take advantage of the three day weekend.  This is a celebration for the annexation of Guanacaste when it was decided it would be a part of Costa Rica rather than Nicaragua.

Thousands will head for the beach for this long weekend.  Some may even have 5 days off because the Virgen de Los Angeles falls on Wednesday the 2nd of August which is also a federal holiday.
