Burning of St. John's whiskers
Between June 23 and 24, the burning of the mustaches of San Juan (the juas), dolls that make different local associations and that make fun of well-known local and national characters, are destined to be burned at the stake. . On the night of the 23rd the contest is held and only the winner is saved from burning, only until the following night. Esteponeros gather on the beach at midnight to get their feet wet and touch the water, which according to tradition, is lucky for the whole year.
