Description

In the hills of Costa Rica, the little town of Palmares has a national reputation for both horse riding and partying. Not surprisingly the Palmares Festival is one of the most anticipated traditional festivals on the Costa Rican calendar, continuing the Christmas party right into the new year. Beginning in the second week of January visitors can experience local food and drink, music, dance, parades, fireworks and of course Costa Rican bullfighting and horse parades. The parade of lanterns and the Palmarin Soccer Cup are also popular events that open the festivities. Be sure to cover up though, watching horse parades in the Summer sun with a little food and drink could get quite exhausting.
