Halloween, Costa Rica-style
What’s the best way to celebrate Halloween in a Costa Rican beach town? For residents of Tamarindo, in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, there’s only once answer: by taking to the waves in full costume.
According to Tico Times freelancer Ellen Zoe Golden (the mermaid who won second place in the costume competition, by the way), all surfers in Tamarindo are invited to the annual event, initiated several years ago by Courtney Gaw Borquet. This year’s costumed ocean romp was organized by Tommy Whalen and Margaret Schaffner.
