Bullfights

Bullfights

The Tico bullfight is more like a rodeo, in that the bulls aren’t slain and (arguably crazy) men often ride them. Oh, and spectators can also choose to climb into the ring, Pamplona-style. These events take place all over the country at seasonal fiestas, and the largest one of the year—Zapote—is sort of like the Costa Rican Super Bowl. Young children grow up learning about a bull named Malacrianza, the most famous in the country for his tendency not only to toss riders, but to kill them.
