Christmas in Costa Rica is a time of joy and celebration with plenty of traditions and activities to enjoy. It's a time of sharing with family and friends, a time of lush landscapes and relaxation. The festivities kick off with the Festival de la Luz, a dazzling parade that travels from Paseo Colon to El Parque de la Democracia in Downtown San Jose.

Local Traditions, Colors, and Flavors of Christmas Celebrations

One of the most important aspects of Christmas in Costa Rica is family, and families gather together to celebrate, exchange gifts, and enjoy traditional meals, like tamales. Music is also an essential part of Christmas, with carolers singing traditional Christmas songs in the streets.
