Las Fiestas de Palmares

This fourth season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on celebrations. To visit Costa Rica is to experience la pura vida, or pure life. While it is known mostly for nature and coffee, the celebrations of Costa Rica make you feel alive. They are full of that “pura vida”. The biggest celebration in Costa Rica is Fiestas de Palmares - two weeks of parades, bullfights, concerts and soccer, or football, matches. This story is told in the the present tense. Repeated words and phrases include “caballo” (horse),“jinete” (horse rider), “lucir” (to show off), “toro” (bull), “corrida” (bullfight), “tico/tica” (Costa Rican), “carpas” (tents), and “largo” (long). No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way. You can find a transcript of the story and read along at Happy listening! ¡Muchas gracias por escuchar! Thank you for listening, and a HUGE thank you for your support. I really enjoy creating and sharing simple, comprehensible stories in Spanish.
