Banks are open from 9am to 3pm weekdays (Monday to Friday), with few exceptions in San José. Government offices are supposedly open 8am to 4pm weekdays, but often close for lunch between about 11:30am and 1pm. Stores are open 8am to 6pm or 7pm Monday to Saturday, but a two-hour lunch break is not uncommon, especially outside San José.
