Protests in Costa Rica, May 3 and 4

Jump to last reply

Expect some disruption to travel if you plan to be in Costa Rica over the dates of May 3-4. (Might be a good time to head to the beach or the rainforest and stay put.) Major protests have been announced in conjunction with a visit by Barack Obama those two days. They're not protests against him -- he's very highly thought of in Costa Rica -- but against the Costa Rican government as it hosts a summit between Obama and Central American leaders. Plans have been announced for protesters to block the Caldera highway between San Jose and the Pacific coast as well as impeding access to San Jose and Liberia airports. This is on top of the normal traffic congestion that such an event would cause.

Just FYI ... ;)
