Mascarada Puppets of Costa Rica

Traditional Costa Rican Mascarada Puppets are a common sight in many Costa Rican parades and carnivals.

The heads are huge and modeled in Papier Mache to resmble characters from traditional Costa Rican folklore.

You can read more about these Mascarada puppets here and if on your next trip to Costa Rica you would like to visit a Mascarada workshop, Marina Villatoro can organise your visit for you.
