Cultural events in Costa Rica: May 13-19, 2019

May 13, 2019

For those who live here, Costa Rica is about more than its rainforests and beaches.

Here are arts- and culture-themed events occurring across Costa Rica in the coming days:

Exposición Paisaje Tropical: The public is invited to visit the exhibition, “majesty reflected in the canvas,” at Galería Yar Burba in Barrio Escalante, San José.

This exhibition features the nation’s best landscape painters, and each of the paintings has been inspired by Costa Rica’s outdoors. This is the first initiative of a Costa Rican Tourism Board project that seeks to link art, culture, tourism and biodiversity.

The exhibition continues until May 31. On May 15 at 7:00 p.m., it will feature a discussion with the artists.

Conservación del Mono Tití: The Tico Times has written about the tití monkey, Costa Rica’s smallest primate.

The Tití Conservation Alliance is hosting an online fundraising auction to help support its efforts.

International Book Fair: Feria Internacional del Libro 2019 continues through May 19 at the Antigua Aduana in San José.

At the National Theater: Costa Rica’s National Theater is an architectural marvel. While you can take a walking tour of the building on most days, it’s best enjoyed during a performance.
