This means that the beaches and resorts will be packed.

According to the director of the Fuerza Pública (police), Juan José Andrade, some 3.500 police officials will be on full time duty to protect vacationers.

Andrade added that in addition to increased patrols of tourist areas, there will be an increase in the patrols of residential areas in the Central Valley in particular. Also, bus terminals in San José and the Pacific and Caribbean coasts.

In contrast to previous years, the Policia de Tránsito will continue to enforce the vehicular restrictions of San José during the vacation period.
