Where do you start with the International Arts Festival? It can seem pretty overwhelming, with its hundreds of events in various venues throughout the capital, but FIA’s online schedule is comprehensive and well organized. If you don’t want to deal with Spanish, see our recommendations here. And definitely don’t miss the La Carpa Circus today. Costa Rica’s own circus troupe kicks off its first of many performances with a variety show – including acrobats, clowns, and fire-throwers.
“Varieté de Circo” takes place April 4 in La Sabana Park. 2 p.m. Free. Info: RedCultura website.
