Holy Week in Costa Rica

Just a reminder that from March 23 until the morning of March 28 no alcohol can be sold in Costa Rica. Bars will be closed by law and no sales at stores. It is during Holy week and a lot of Ticos visit family in the country and go to the beach. Beach hotels will be full.

Hello MrsYe! I'm not trying to contradict your post; however, I've noticed in years past the ban on alcohol is on the day before Good Friday and Good Friday only (this year March 24 and 25). We live in Manuel Antonio and YES! those beach hotels will be full, full, full!

I have found it bone dry from Thurs thru Sunday until Monday morning in San Jose.

The beach resort areas may be less stringent
