To celebrate the independence days of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, Snapchat busted out ¡Celebra! to highlight how Central Americans spent September 15. And we really have to give Snapchat all the 👏 for including something on each of the five countries. The range of snaps includes people with fireworks, dancing punta, talking about why they are proud of their country, and other cute moments.
The Latinternet has taken notice and applauded Snapchat for not letting the independence days of these five Central American countries go unnoticed. Check out some of the responses below:

Meanwhile, Nicaraguan users on Google were welcomed by the Salvadoran flag, which could have been easily avoided by Googling it. Or reading our Latin American flag guide.
