Fiesta de los Diablitos, an annual event celebrated by the ancestorial natives of Costa Rica called the Boruca, is held to commemorate a historical event of the Spanish arriving on the shores of the country and the Boruca having victory over the considered invasion of the local village.  A mock dance is featuring a native dressed in a costume of a bull being chased by devilish creatures of the forest which are the village men dressed in wooden carved masked and sacks.  The adult males of the village are the performers having met the requirement of carving their own mask to use during the 4 day event.  The Borucas live in a remote part of the Talamanca mountains, still protecting their heritage through their own language and historical celebrations handed down from one generation to the next.

Appointments are required to visit the village, however, you can also view a similar dance during the Festival of the Spheres which takes place in Palmer Sur, located on the Pacific coast.  See our events page to located one of these festivals.
