Pic of the Day: Feeling like fall in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has rainy and dry seasons, but nothing that can truly pass for fall.
Still, with Halloween approaching, it’s officially jack-o’-lantern season — even in Costa Rica.
Pumpkins are available, though expensive, at some upscale grocery stores across the country. (Think AutoMercado and PriceSmart.) But in a pinch, a watermelon or pineapple works just as well and adds a tropical flair to your celebration.
Preparing for Halloween in Costa Rica? Make sure you’ve caught up on the country’s spookiest folklore.
And if you’re already looking ahead to Thanksgiving, you’ll be happy to learn turkeys and cranberry are available in Costa Rica, too. Check out this story on how Thanksgiving in Costa Rica was a long time coming.
