The Fiesta Virgen del Mar is defined by a display of boats that are decorated with religious symbols, flags and flowers. The festival takes place every year to remember the storm of 1920 that caused widespread damage and loss of life in the bustling port town of Puntarenas and to give thanks to the Patron Saint of Puntarenas, the Virgen del Carmen. On land people gather for mass, musical performances, ox cart parades, dance performances, live music, and sporting events. The festival takes place every year on the weekend closest to July 16th. People from all over Costa Rica flock to the town of Puntarenas making it difficult to find hotels. If you intend to attend the Virgin of the Sea Festival, make plans well in advance.
