Costa Rica News – As Thursday night’s publish will be in essence our weekend edition we will give a run down of a few events happening in Costa Rica in different areas that we think our readers might enjoy attending. This is by no means all the weekend events but ones that appeal to our curiosity or excitement bug.
As for me I will be watching the lacrosse national championship tournament, because it is my favorite time of year seeing these great teams battle it out. Go Syracuse!
But for the rest of you this is a great weekend to go get some culture, sports and some great music in Costa Rica.
