For those yearning for a traditional Christmas meal, Marie’s Restaurant in Flamingo, offered Christmas Eve carols and a traditional turkey dinner with all the festive trimmings.

Each year, the local ‘fiestas’ move from town to town. A great Costa Rican celebration of food, bull riding and rancho culture, this an event not to be missed. Over the 24th, 25th and 26th of December, the fiestas were held in Matapalo, a small village 15 minutes drive south of Flamingo Beach.
