And each year, besides the traditions such as adorning the Autopista General Cañas and public spaces with the pride of the flag, some get creative. Like the painting blue, white and red the ciclovia (bicycle path) and rocks along the shore of Caldera, in Puntarenas.

This year marks the 196th anniversary of the Independence of Central America –  Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. On this day in 1821, Central American leaders accepted a plan drafted by the Mexican Agustin de Iturbide, declaring the five nations free from Spain.
