Midyear public school vacations begin Monday for two weeks, and the tourism industry is ready.
Also prepared are the various museums and private clubs that set up programs for youngsters.
Police also said they will be on their toes until vacation ends July 11.
Some private schools, such as Country Day School in Escazú, are not affected because they are on a different calendar. Country Day uses the U.S. system, and the school has already ended its class year.
The vacation was part of the demands of striking teachers who did not work for a month. The teacher negotiators demanded the vacation continue even though youngsters had missed weeks of school. The government agreed.
