3rd largest fiesta in the world Jan 23, 2009
Go to Palmares! It's a two week long party/state fair-type event in the small mountain town of Palmares in Costa Rica. It's the third biggest party in the world and more alcohol gets drank/drunk there than at Oktoberfest in Munich. En serio.

There are tons of vendors selling all types of Costa Rican food, drinks, etc. They set up different sized bars all over the grounds, some really big like the Marbolo or Imperial tents, and others slightly smaller (but still really damn fun). Drinks are a bit expensive but you can bring in your own so theres no reason to drop too much cash here.

The festival begins in early January and the first night is called Tope. Hundreds of thousands of cowboys and their horses fill up the area, shit every where, and party with tons of people.

Palmares is awesome. Go if you get the chance. I really couldn't spend more than one night there though...... I hit it too hard.
