A Christmas Tradition – Tamale Day at the Cabinas

Tamale Day at the Cabinas

An important Christmas tradition in Costa Rica, as in many other Latin American countries, is making tamales. Usually whole families get together for the time- and labor-intensive process. Here at the Cabinas was no different as our “family” of residents and staff got together for the 2nd Annual Tamale Day. It was fun, and oh so yummy. Here’s the video:

Unfortunately, when it was time to take some final video of the steaming tamales, unwrapped and ready to be eaten, we were too busy — eating them. Maybe next year!
