Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
Mariachi music originated from Mexico.
Mariachi began as a regional style which was called “Son Jaliscience” in the west center of Mexico and was originally played only with string instruments. The musicians dressed in the white pants and shirts of the regional peasant farmers.
This picture was taken at Malecon’s Bar in Jaco.
