The most popular cultural activities are the civic fiestas. In addition to bull riding, you can see local displays of horsemanship and folkloric dances. There are also horseback riding tours that will lead you from village to village while recounting Costa Rica history and sharing a drink with colorful locals. A visit to the artisan village of Guatil is also a popular cultural excursion. The inhabitants of Guatil, descendants of the Chorotega Indians of this region, make pottery using many of the techniques of their pre-Colombian ancestors. Ask your Casa Bali concierge what events are taking place during your visit. He won’t let you miss the most popular events of the season.
