24th October – San Jeronimo all over!
San Jeronimo is celebrated in several towns but they do it a bit different in Masatepe. I don’t know why but they celebrate today with a tradition very particular to this village surrounded by volcanoes. They perform the dance of the fish. There are approximately 0 families making their living from the sea but they parade around dressed as giant fish being caught.
They also have their own small Torovenado parade, marching bands and of course it wouldn’t be complete without fireworks waking everyone up at 4am.
Of course we won’t be there that early but we will spend the day there and around. Don’t miss it!
