Festejos Populares in Puntarenas

Does anyone know the actual dates of this festival in November this year? Also, any first hand insights on whether it is worthwhile for a visit? We love carnival, but we can't quite get a clear picture of what this festivity involves, and we can't find anything more specific than "November" as the time. Advice appreciated.

If you like to see a bunch of drunk people ...dancing at very lowd music...that is your kind of place...

Nothing to do with a nice well organized carnival...is better if you try to see some monkeys or iguanas...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in paradise!!
