What to do in Costa Rica in December

December 7, 2018

The tourism high season has begun and the holidays are upon us. December is a busy month in Costa Rica, and we’ve prepared a collection of some under-the-radar events occurring here this month.

Dec. 8: Special Exhibit of Handmade Goods, Grecia Cultural Center

The first of what organizer Mary Master hopes becomes an annual arts and crafts show in Grecia. The event has no entry fees — for the artists or the public — and provides a venue for local artisans to showcase their work.

Dec. 7-9: Bijagua Christmas Festival

The Bijagua Community Security group is organizing the second annual Christmas Festival at the Carlos Vargas Park. The event showcases the local culture, and Sunday will feature a children’s party for lower-income children.

Dec. 7-8: Christmas in the Caribbean, Puerto Viejo 

Starting at 3 p.m. both days, the local market features local goods in addition to raffles, music and other activities.

Dec. 15-16: Tropical Market, San José

The popular Mercado Tropical celebrates its 10th edition (and sixth anniversary) at the Casa del Cuño.

Dec. 21-22: “Paisajes,” San José

Contemporary Chilean dance takes Costa Rica at Gráfica Génesis in San José. The performance transforms female stereotypes into tools of empowerment.
