While some were waiting the death of Chavez, others expressed surprise.

Without a doubt this is a difficult time for Venezuelans in a country that has, for years been divided, and now the unknown of how the general population will react to the death of their president for the last 14 years.

The concern by many Venezuelans making Costa Rica their home is the future of their loved Venezuela and the uncertainty about the cessation of the “Chavismo” in Venezuela.

Costa Rican president, Laura Chinchilla Miranda, by way of a press release, expressed her solidarity with the Venezuelans. Chinchilla sent her “pesames” (condolences) to the Chavez family.
