What to do in Costa Rica in December
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.
