In the towns of this province have been kept the rich cultural expressions created during the years of the Spanish colonization. The traditional dances such as the cumbia, the tamborito and the punto are as ancient as the people of these towns who take this culture with them wherever they go. A visit to the towns of the Herrera and Los Santos provinces places tourists in contact with the most representative aspects of our culture. During the fairs and celebrations, both men and women dress beautifully in traditional ways that are very pleasing to the eyes and sing and dance to the rhythm of the vernacular music accompanied by drums, violins, mejoranera, socavon and churuca. During each time of the year there is some fair or celebration to enjoy in Ocú, Parita, Pesé, La Villa de Los Santos, Guararé, Las Tablas o Tonosí and each festivity is a sample of the cultural traditions carefully kept during centuries in these two provinces. In the cascos antiguos of the main towns of each province tourists may also visit the colonial churches whose ancient walls still hear the people’s prayers.
