15th August – La Virgen de la Asuncion

While this day is celebrated in various towns, we will be going to the heart of cowboy country – Juigalpa, Chontales – to see a rodeo. If you have ever been to a rodeo you know how exciting it can be. Add to that the craziness of a local Nica fiesta and it will make this one a rodeo to remember!

They also celebrate with a big parade that includes the dance of the Gigantona, the giant lady with her big-headed midget husband.  If we are able, we will also check one of the country’s largest museums of precolumbian artifacts. We are really excited to be offering this trip and want you to be a part of it!
