Watch this short video below showing part of an Easter tradition that takes place in a few small villages in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, including our own, Paso Hondo. Not quite a church-sanctioned event, villagers parade a puppet of Judas around on horseback, and go door-to-door singing and asking for liquor to corrupt Judas. Then at midnight they take him into the central town plaza and burn the puppet. Not every town does this, just a few. And this is one of the interesting typical traditions that we often witness out in this part of Costa Rica.
Enjoy the video, and see you soon at Pura Vida House!
