Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica (PRWEB) August 15, 2014
Tulemar Vacation Homes will host more local families this weekend celebrating Mother’s Day. The national holiday is celebrated on August 15th in Costa Rica, a country known for having strong family bonds. The mother is generally the most important member of the family group, and serves as the unifying force.
It is a big deal for ticos; banks and small businesses close, and San Jose residents travel to the coastlines to celebrate the three-day weekend. The holiday was established by law in 1932.
As in other parts of the world, Mother’s Day in Costa Rica is an important gift giving occasion. Businesses across all sectors including retailers, restaurants, personal services and hospitality generally offer discounts and special packages designed with Mother’s Day celebrations in mind.
“Mother’s Day weekend is a busy time for hotels in the area,” says Dave Houck, spokesperson for Tulemar Vacation Homes and Rentals. “We always expect a higher number of locals, and enjoy hosting these families celebrating and treating their moms. It’s a fun time when locals and visitors alike get to enjoy the special deals being offered at businesses in the area in celebration of the holiday.”
According to reports from the reservations department at Tulemar, the amount of inquiries received from residents in the weeks leading up to Mother’s Day weekend takes a significant increase, reporting 30% more phone calls, chats, and email inquiries from locals. “It’s a good thing for everyone; Tulemar enjoys a fun and busy weekend, and visitors from outside see the special tradition behind such an important day for Costa Ricans.”
