In Costa Rica there are different arenas in which during the festivities make bull riding championships. The law prohibits the killing of bulls and other animals on public or private events. Many Costa Ricans enter the bullring to be chased and rammed by the bull. It is what is called “Corridas a la tica”, and those who participate are called “improvised bullfighters.”
