The Costa Rican Tourism Board declared the Fiestas Típicas Nacionales de Santa Cruz 2019 (National Traditional Party of Santa Cruz), which will be celebrated January 14 through January 20, 2019, of “public interest”.
This traditional activity carried out in the county of Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, has gained popularity in the country, in particular due to the Costa Rican style bullfighting.
It was the initiative of the mayor of Santa Cruz, María Rosa López to request the declaratory of public interest from the Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT), the importance of this is that it allocates funds to promote this activity worldwide.
Bullfighting in Costa Rica doesn’t actually include bull fighting, but instead, rodeo-style activities.
This activity will now be promoted in international fairs and Costa Rica tourism campaigns.
