Costa Rica Independence Day | Culture

Costa Rican Independence Day marks the beginning of many years of tranquility for the country, in stark contrast to many neighboring Central American countries. It is a country that has been known internationally for just over two centuries not only for its distinctive lush landscape, but also its quintessential peaceful society. Consequently, the values of living simply and kindly, with an easygoing and relaxed disposition are embedded in the culture.

On September 15th, families and individuals of all ages lined the streets of downtown Jacó for a long-awaited return of community Independence Day celebrations. Last year marked the country’s bicentennial anniversary of independence.

Every year on the night of September 14th, every school in each municipality commemorates the original messenger of the news of Central American independence. That is to say, the highly anticipated ‘faroles’ parade reenacts the carrying of the ‘freedom torch’. Children, parents, teachers and members of the community punctuate the National Anthem with a joyous patriotic shout. Afterward, singing and laughter illuminate the neighborhood streets with hand-decorated lanterns.

Then, on the morning of Independence Day, there are parades all over the country for which students have prepared months ahead of time. This year, our RE/MAX Oceanside Realty joined the festivities. Traditional dances, marching bands, and vendors offering traditional Costa Rica food fill the streets. For example, girls dress in colorful, full ‘gola’ skirts paired with white blouses for the traditional dance. Meanwhile, the boys typically wear a neckerchief and a brimmed ‘campesino’ hat. 

In light of the distinguishing principles of peace and democracy in this Central American oasis, Independence Day is a joyful occasion for all to celebrate.
