Arts and culture at a glance: the week ahead in Costa Rica

Thirsty for knowledge about the growing Costa Rican craft beer scene? Taste some of its finest offerings while you learn from experts at “News and Brews: A Conversation about Costa Rican Craft Beer,” held at El Steinvorth in downtown San José and hosted by The Tico Times Events group (Saturday, May 14).
If it’s been a while since you’ve visited a Costa Rican museum, stop by the Casa del Cuño at the Antigua Aduana and catch up on what you’ve been missing in one fell swoop: more than 25 of the country’s museums will celebrate International Museum Day by putting on ExpoMuseo, a showcase of their offerings and events. ExpoMuseo will include booths, live performances and more (Wednesday, May 17 and Thursday, May 18).
Another gem to revisit is the Parque La Libertad in Desamparados, and its social outreach: The park’s offerings in the coming days include an origami workshop, a migratory bird count and a skateboard/balance board competition (throughout the month; full agenda here).
