Costa Rica Living -The International Day of the Worker

May 01, 2009 - Living in Costa Rica has many advantages and one of them is the ongoing list of festivals and holidays held on a national and local level every week. Along with its tropical weather and friendly atmosphere, this is just another reason why Costa Rica is the perfect place to purchase real estate for use as a vacation home or as a new home.

Today in Costa Rica is the "National Day of the Worker" which is a legal country wide holiday.

Every year, this joyful holiday to celebrate the hard working Ticos and Ticas has a theme. This year, the theme is about the crisis of the free market. Simply said, it's against corruption and the right of workers in Costa Rica.

If you happen to be in San Jose, Costa Rica on International Day of the Worker, you will notice that the city is usually not as pack as usual and several stores will be closed. This is of course because it is a national holiday but due many people leaving for the beach for an extended weekend. The other reasons are the festivities which start with a march of Union workers and other such groups thru downtown San Jose.

The march starts downtown at 10 am and is one of the many events that will be taking place this weekend.

Other events include the Circuito Nacional de Surf in Playa Hermosa, and several music concerts will be held in the many beaches of Costa Rica.

The San Jose Nacional Museum will also be celebrating its 12nd birthday with an orchid fair complete with exhibitions, food, music and dancing. So visitors should plan in seeing this event which starts this Sunday from 10 am to 3pm.

If you were looking to get out of the city but stay in the Central valley then Turrialba is a good place to visit this weekend. Turrialba is having its 23rd Feria Internacional(23rd International Fair).

This fair is a very large event where dishes from many lands are featured and available for tasting.

And this is just another great reason to purchase Costa Rica Real Estate!
