Virgen del Carmen

Religious in Isla Gobernadora

Every July 16 the island celebrates the Fiesta de la Virgen del Carmen. All the boats of the gulf go to sea fully decorated, visiting Islas Gobernadora, Leones, Cebaco and the coastal villages of Hicaco and Santa Catalina. There's singing and celebrations to invoke long life and the protection for fishermen. It's a very traditional and picturesque event.
