Guanacaste Annexion -
Saturday July 25, 2020

Secular holiday : Guanacaste was originally a separate province in Spain's Central American Empire. Spain gave the region to Nicaragua in 1787, but in 1812 granted the land to Costa Rica so that Costa Rica would be large enough to be represented in the new colonial government, which ruled from Guatemala. After independence from Spain in 1821, both Costa Rica and Nicaragua claimed Guanacaste. Inhabitants of the region remained divided as well. The issue was finally put to vote, and the Guanacastecos favoring Costa Rica won.
