Yes, it is that time of year when the hordes of Ticos descend upon the beaches to PARTE. For the next week we will be entertain by some of the best loud boom box music in the world. We will be able to enjoy these great tunes at least until 5AM each morning, just in time to get up and greet the day. We also have a special feeling this year, most Ticos are pissed off at the US for having snow during the soccer match (which by the way was the only way they won) and adds much needed spice to this week of drinking.

Jugadores califican de ‘inaceptable’ ‘vulgar’ e ‘increíble’ partido eliminatorio en la nieve
This would be like playing the Super Bowl in the desert at 140 degrees heat! Shame on mother nature for pulling such a prank!
So this weeks should live up to abnormal standards, especially since the weather has been perfect, hot sunny days and no rain. Also new this year is we can drink all week long!!! No more dry days like in the past were the law prohibited selling alcohol on Thursday and Friday, the restaurant owners are happy about that, in the past they would end up loosing thousands of dollars (colones) as a result of this law. People would still drink, they would just buy out the stores on Wednesday to get them thru until Saturday. Happy Easter!
