The president was received by a group of about 10 people who yelled insults at him, raising protest banners. Alvarado stopped for a moment in front of them and, using had signs, asked them to go get vaccinated.

However, there were also those who came to greet him affectionately on the occasion of the festivities.

On July 25, the people of Guanacaste celebrate the incorporation of the territory of the Nicoya Party into the State of Costa Rica. The year was 1824.

That historic union took place through a plebiscite in which, in an open council, the residents of the municipalities of Nicoya and Santa Cruz voted to join Costa Rica and not Nicaragua.

Today that decision is embraced by all Costa Ricans every year and not even a dangerous virus could extinguish the happiness of the celebration.
