There will be 19 national holidays this year, the same number as in 2022. They highlight February, May, June and October as the best months to plan a vacation getaway, each with a four-day long weekend.

According to the current Law, holidays are classified into three: immovable holidays, those whose established date brings with it a suspension of work and educational activities on the same day;

transferable holidays, which are moved to the previous Monday (if it falls on a Tuesday or Wednesday) or the following (if it falls on a Thursday or Friday) to create a long weekend;

and holidays for tourist purposes, days set by the National Executive that coincide with Monday or Friday and are intended to promote recreation and tourism.
