Rodeo festivals?

I'm a fan of rodeos and love seeing them when I travel. I know there is a festival in Santa Cruz this January (Fiestas Típicas Nacionales Santa Cruz 14th-18th). Anybody have any more information on this festival? I`m curious if there is a schedule of events, where the events take place, and similar details. Anybody know whats up?

We were there for a couple of days of the festivities once but it was over 20 years ago. They have a great facebookk page with a bunch of photos etc. https:/… and it doesn't look like it's changed all that much in the past two decades although the bull ring and rodeo stands are bigger now...horse tope still on main street and most of the other activities in plaza Mangos.

Have been to many fiestas patronales all over Costa Rica and the ones on the Nicoya Peninsula are always some of the best probably because the sabanero culture is still an everyday way of life for so many people. Enjoy!

They post the festival schedule two months before the event, so i am afraid you have to wait for a while.

Enjoy your vacations.
