Costa Rica's Minister of Labour, Olman Segura, has announced that Thursday, May 8, 2014, had been declared as another one-off non-working public sector holiday in Costa Rica, on account of the upcoming inauguration of president-elect Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera.

One-off public holidays are not uncommon in Costa Rica. Last year Costa Rica's Government declared Monday, June 3rd, 2013, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Costa Rica, to coincide with the visit in Costa Rica of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Earlier that same year (02-May-2013), Costa Rica's Government had also declared Friday, May 3rd, 2013, as a one -off non-working public holiday in Costa Rica to coincide with the visit in Costa Rica of US President Obama.

Although the aforementioned declaration of Thursday, May 8, 2014, as another one-off non-working public sector holiday in Costa Rica, is limited to the public sector ("La decisión no incluye a los trabajadores del sector privado"), the Minister of Labour did confirm that Thursday, May 1st, 2014, would be a non-working public holiday for both the private and public sectors of Costa Rica ("el Ministerio de Trabajo recordó que el próximo 1 de mayo, Día Internacional del Trabajador, es un feriado de pago obligatorio, tanto para funcionarios públicos como privados").
