(QCOSTARICA) Today, July 25, we celebrate Guanacaste Day. It is a legal holiday. This year, however, the holiday is officially on Monday (July 27).

Although known popularly as Guanacaste Day, the holiday is really “Anexión del Partido de Nicoya” (annexation of the Partido de Nicoya) to Costa Rica, the historical event that refers to the incorporation of the territory of Nicoya (most of what is today’s modern day Guanacaste), which occurred on July 25, 1824.
