Every year there have been international music- and dancing groups visiting for us and showing incredible presentations based on rich Garifuna culture. These presentations of local artists and guests from Belize, Honduras and Guatemala are one of the most important cultural event in Nicaragua and Central America. Our warm recommendation is: Don't miss them! Be there!
Surprisingly, good old Country and Western music is very popular in Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast. In dance halls, specially among older generations play lot very famous, sentimental and traditional country songs. Where this kind of preference comes from, nobody knows. But sure they are very popular. Mr Robert Sambola's La Fe country band give us a taste of Nicaraguan talent of playing Country and Western songs, when visinting in La Fe Garifuna community. Check these videos out, they are amazing.
Easter 2013 is soon here! Now is the best time to spend a pleasent time in Orinoco, the major Garifuna community in Nigaraguan Caribbean coast. What to do, then? Burn Water fenomenon is in its best right now. in the nightime all small animals of the river reflect pale-green light when water is agitated by boat, by fish or by crocodile. The light can be very strong: you don't need the flashlight at all. The crocodile catching is in its best, too, You can go to see alligators and crocodiles in their natural environment in river Wawashan and even capture the small ones by hand (if you wish to do so). We will show you how it works safely. Fishing is very good right now, boath in the river and the lagoon and some mighty tarpoons are waiting for you.
But the most important thing is always easy going atmospphere and relaxing in culturally rich place. Dancing, playing drums, playing games, participate in nice social life of Easter time, feeling good and enjoying the life -- and living the Garifuna culture!
