Palmares Festival Kicks Off Today


The new year always starts  off with the, the Palmares Festival located in town of Palmares northwest of San José.

Palmares is perhaps the largest of all summer fairs that started on Christmas day in San José and reverberate throughout the country in just about every small and large community.

The Palmares Festival takes in the entire community of Palmares, the entire town goes into festive mood. And the centre of the festival is the TOPE (horse parade) that is on Thursday, followed by rides, games and concerts. And the bulls! But more than anything else it is one gian outdoor party.

And for this the Policia de Tránsito will be in full force on the major highways and all the side routes to ensure that drunk drivers are taken off the road. The police operation is a hit and miss until the late evening where just about every vehicle is stopped.

The Festival continues until Januray 21. For more on the festival go to:

On deck for the mega festivals is Puntarenas next month.
