Hand Signals in Costa Rica

crowded gesture Costa Rica

In Costa Rica, when someone puts all five of their fingers together pointing up, they are saying that a certain place is crowded. The exact history of this gesture is unknown, but most people assume that each finger is symbolic for a person, and the fingers being close together show that people are close together, because there isn’t much space. It is very common among young people who will say something like, “this restaraunt is very crowded” while doing this gesture.
