US Embassy in Costa Rica

July 3rd, 2013 (InsideCostaRica.com) Thursday, July 4th marks the 237th anniversary of the independence of the United States of America, and the U.S. Embassy will be closed in observance.

It was in 1776 when what is now the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence stating that the 13 colonies in North America were “Free and Independent States” and that “all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is and ought to be dissolved in its entirety.”

The document, entitled The Unanimous Declaration of the 13 United States of America, explained the reasons for the separation from the British crown and is considered the founding manuscript of the United States of America.

The embassy will re-open on Friday, July 5th, during its normal hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
