Pesca de La Lisa “El Charco” starts at 17:00. At the cry of YA! “Now!” and with the firing of a rocket flare into the air, thousands of people carrying baskets will all enter the large brackish pond by this beautiful cobble beach, to try and catch themselves a slippery, spiny loach fish with their bare hands. A spectacle in itself.

Later that evening the El Charco- gala at 21:00 will be held at Plaza Proyecto Desarrollo Comunitario.
