ATMs and online banking of all banks will remain available to customers without any variation.

There is some confusion in the public, believing that banks are also closed this weekend and next, in particular the state banks such as the Banco Nacional (BNCR), Banco de Costa Rica (BCR) and Banco Popular (BP).


Many of the state bank branches are closed on weekends, open are branches located in malls. However, all malls and commercial centers in the orange alert are closed this weekend and next.

As to the private banks, some are open and others closed. For example, BAC Credomatic branches not in malls are open this weekend and next but will be closed during the week
