Although the big days for the romeria are August 1 and 2, the police operation is already underway and will continue until August 5.

If you will be taking part in the romeria, authorities recommend not to carry large amounts of cash, jewelry, and visible electronic devices; walk in groups and on official routes; wear proper clothing (it gets cold at night, especially in Cartago), rain gear and footwear; and liquids to stay hydrated.

If you take children, provide them with proper identification, like badges and with personal information of the child and parents, in case you get separated.

Do not take pets on the romeria. The fine for taking your dog is ¢250,000 colones.
