Drinks during Easter week

We will be in Costa Rica the week before Easter and have heard that no drinks are served--is that really the case? We'd love ot have a glass of wine or two with dinner. We are staying at the Ylang-Ylang Beach Resort.

By law things are supposed to be dry during Semana Santa- but depending on the relationship some places have with the Policia things may be over looked. My advice would be a discreet email to the resort- and I'm sure they'll confirm whether they'll be dry or not. I know that during my trips over Semana Santa, I would always stock up the week before to beat the crush at the grocery store.

Don't panic. Most places serve the tourists. Maybe they will put an empty can of 'near beer' next to the glass of beer they serve. Maybe the'll serve the wine in a 'juice glass', or similar show of compliance.
