Thanksgiving is a holiday that isn’t nationally celebrated in Costa Rica, but fits well both with Costa Rica and Las Catalinas. Thanksgiving is a holiday centered around the idea of being grateful for what we have, and it presents a chance to step away from the busyness of modern society to slow down and connect with loved ones.
Costa Rica’s cultural concept of pura vida inspires a way of life based on taking what happens, appreciating nature and others, and being happy with life. In Las Catalinas, pura vida underpins much of the walkable, active, and healthy lifestyle that can be found in town, and a visit provides a chance to reconnect with family, take a break, and embrace the purity and simplicity of life.
A fitting place to celebrate a holiday which emphasizes many of the same values.
Most traditions around Thanksgiving center around the big dinner, drawing back to the coming together of cultures over one table that defined the first Thanksgiving in 1621. Over time, Thanksgiving weekend has become a chance for families to come together for a weekend, either at home or a shared destination, and be together at one table. It’s a chance to be grateful for loved ones, and spend some time focused on family.
