Every little town Costa Rica has its annual “fiestas”

Every little town in Costa Rica has its annual “fiestas” for a week long celebration with events such as parades, rodeos with bulls and other cultural expressions. Last week we had the “Fiestas de San Juan Bautista” here in Puerto Jiménez and on Sunday afternoon part of the El Remanso team went to the final parade. Our intern Kris took his camera to captures some of the moments. There were many different activities with parades, local dances and a horse-ride of over 50 riders from Puerto Jiménez toward the Matapalo area. Later in the evening a heavy (but fortunately short!) rainstorm came down in Puerto Jimenéz during the parades but does not stop a parade here in the Osa! Everybody continued smiling and swinging their balloons to the rhythms of the drums from the orchestra marching directly behind them! Pura Vida Costa Rica!
