Celebrating the festival of the Virgin of the Sea is a big deal for people of the city of Puntarenas. Each year on a Saturday, closest to July 16, the fishing boats and yachts are brightly decorated with lights and flags and sailed into the sea. They seek protection from the Virgin for another year at the sea. Besides sailing and racing there is plenty of dancing, food and drinking on that day.
