I’m from Costa Rica and I live in the U.S. now.
How they celebrate b-days in Costa, depends on the family, really. Most people will throw in a party for their kids with cake, ice cream, music, food… some partents hold parties at McDonald’s or other fast food restaurant.
As they get older the kids may not want all that and just want to go to the movies with friends.
Instead of a ‘sweet sixteen’, in Costa Rica (like in the rest of Latin America) they celebrate a “Quinceañera” (when the girl turns 15). And it could be a BIG party like the ones they have here in the U.S., with music, all dressed up, lots of food, etc; some girls would rather ask their parents for a trip to the beach or something.
Older people hardly ever celebrate their bithday. If they do is only with a few friends and family, most people I know like going to the movies or eat out, instead of having a party.
Like I said, it depends on the family and the personal taste…
