As a tropical country with rich biodiversity, Panama has a wide variety of fruits in varying flavors and colors that make up the diet, above all in rural areas (IICA 2009).
The township had no cultural expressions that honor its inhabitants, so the idea was born to hold a festival that identifies Río Hato and provides the community with a novel activity. Río Hato is associated with beaches but also has several fruits, prominently the mango, a delicious tropical fruit of great commercial value.
The purpose of this festival is to promote and develop activities that disseminate and stimulate the cultural diversity of the township, through educational, cultural, and educational activities that encourage family coexistence among community members.
Mango Varieties Available at the Festival
At the 1st. Festival we will have over 15 known mango varieties and five types that could not be identified.
