In Costa Rica for Christmas? Don't miss the bulls!

If you're here for Christmas, you are in for a cultural treat! Ticos celebrate with festivities centered around "las fiestas" - part rodeo, part bull fight. Not only can you practice Spanish, you can also try common foods unique to Costa Rica and experience the thrill of the bulls.
