Costa Rican Public Holiday October 16

Costa Rica's Ministry of Labour (Ministerio de Trabajo y Seguridad Social - MTSS) has confirmed that the upcoming October 12 non-working public holiday for Costa Rica's (Día del Encuentro de Culturas) was an official non-working public holiday (feriado de pago no obligatorio), but that, as per the amended public holidays legislation of Costa Rica and, as it occurs on a Thursday, in 2017, its observance would be moved to Monday, October 16, 2017.

The October 12 non-working public holiday in Costa Rica was never covered by the Abel Pacheco administration 2005 law (17-Mar-2005) which specified that 4 public holidays would move from mid-week to the following Monday (April 11, July 25, August 15, and October 12).

Since then, one by one (05-Oct-2007, 26-Jun-2009, and 06-Oct-2010), 3 of the 4 Costa Rican public holidays covered by the 2005 Abel Pacheco administration law were made immovable again, but not (yet?) the October 12 non-working public holiday of Costa Rica (22-Sep-2016), in line with the official list of public holidays in Costa Rica for the calendar year 2017, as announced late last year (12-Dec-2016).
