In case you didn’t get enough of the Christmas fiestas, January continues the action with the famous Fiestas de Palmares.
Palmares is a pueblito just about an hour from San José. The Palmares fiestas are different from the fiestas found everywhere because they feature a series of concerts. Artists come from far and wide, both Costa Rican and international, to grace the stage.
It also hosts several nights of rodeos and a Gran Tope, a type of horse parade where the experienced riders show off their horses’ unusual dance-like gait.
