The Governing Council of Costa Rica, on the recommendation of the Minister of Tourism, Gustavo Segura, has declared extended public sector holidays in Costa Rica for the entire upcoming holy week ("public sector offices will close at the end of the afternoon of Friday, March 26, and will reopen on Monday, April 5").

The extension of the Easter week public sector holidays to a full week ("otorgar vacaciones a empleados públicos para contribuir a reactivar una amplia serie de encadenamientos económicos ligados a la llamada industria sin chimeneas en las comunidades rurales y costeras"), a regular occurrence in neighboring Nicaragua, was observed regularly in Costa Rica until 2013 (2013-03-18, 2012-03-25, 2010-03-11 and 2009-03-19), then again for 3 years (2018-03-16, 2017-03-15 and 2016-02-24) but not for the past 2 years.
