Puerto Viejo de Talamanca receives visitors all year long, and November is no exception.
Aside from our beautiful beaches, the National Parks, the Caribbean cuisine, the environment, and the water activities, November offers two distinct events for tourists.
The first weekend of the month actually starts this Thursday, October 31st, with both Halloween and Masquerade Day celebrations.
Masquerade Day (Dia de la Mascarada Tradicional Costarricense), celebrated throughout the country, fills Costa Rica with parades and festivals. People would dress in costumes wearing big-head masks. These masks are commonly a mix of glue, cheap paper, and paint.
At night, several clubs and discotheques host parties. There, both the Masquerade Day and the American Halloween merge, offering visitors and natives alike a beautiful festivity.
The following Saturday, November 2nd, Costa Rica celebrates The Day of The Dead (All Soul's Day, or El Día de Los Muertos). Natives honor their deceased loved ones by mass-visiting their tombs with flowers, candles, and ornaments.
By the end of the month, Thursday, November 28th, Thanksgiving is another American festivity widely celebrated in Costa Rica. Restaurants serve turkey and other typical dishes from this celebration, often with a touch of the native cuisine style.
In November, the Costa Rican Caribbean offers crowd-free beaches, affordable rates, and festivities that will make you feel at home.
