Many of our hotels will celebrate the annexation of Guanacaste this week with typical dishes and typical dances. During the celebration, the guests are able to experience the culture of Costa Rica.
The annexation took place in 1824. It was a voluntary act and today ” Guanacastecos” identify themselves with Costa Rica with the slogan ” de la patria por nuestra voluntad”, which translates into ” a part of this country by own will”.
Although the annexation celebration is centered in the province of Guanacaste, it is a national holiday in Costa Rica, as banks, government offices and agencies and many businesses and retail shops close. Fiestas and parades are held throughout the country.
