After much deliberation, the 16th Annual Panga Fishing Tournament that was postponed due to Tropical Storm Nate has been rescheduled for Saturday the 2nd of December. The event has become a local tradition bringing the community together for a day of competition and fun. Some of the local Panga fishermen who participate in the tournament have hard time raising money to pay the entrance fee, gas and other expenses the event requires and this year is no exception. The organizing committee of the tournament is asking those who wish to help to sponsor a Panga. The entrance fee is only C$600 ($20) and with this you will get two t-shirts, a half bottle of Flor de Caña Rum, and your own fishing team to root for.

December in San Juan del Sur
The Spanish imposed Catholicism (perpetuated over the years) has produced some of the most popular and deeply religious celebrations that have also managed to maintain a regional flavor. La Purísima is one of the most important of these festivals and is celebrated with fervor and enthusiasm. December 8th marks the celebration of the Immaculate Conception and honors the Virgin Mary. It is celebrated with deep conviction in all of the towns and villages of Nicaragua.
Festivities begin in late November with nine days of prayers and ends in late December. Each town celebrates in its own way, but the general principle is to give thanks to the Virgin Mary. La Gritería (The Shouting) is held on the evening of the 7th of December with processions visiting various shrines in honor of the Virgin Mary, performing prayers, and chants and setting off fireworks.
Yes, December is firework month, which simply means more fireworks than normal exploding at all times of the day or night. You may not have picked one of the quietest times to visit Nicaragua but it will be one of the more memorable ones.
