Answer for Are supermarkets in San Jose and nearby open on Dec 31? If so how can I find out if the hours are reduced due to the holiday?

Hi Sheila, January 1st is a holiday in Costa Rica. Lots of places close down but we don’t remember all of the grocery stores being closed. They’ll at least be open on the 30th and 31st so you should be all set.
