In case you were wondering what happened to Easter, it is late this year, falling on April 24. (The latest day Easter can fall is April 25.) Remember that most of the country celebrates Semana Santa, or Easter Holy Week; public transportation is limited and liquor sales are legally prohibited on Thursday and Friday of that week, so plan accordingly.
