This festivity is held on the 24th of June in the Otavalo valley and it lasts a whole week. A unique celebration, it is a ritual to honor “Pachamama” (Mother Earth) that involves local men, who dress up with varied costumes and start dancing from one house to another, until they reach the chapel of San Juan. Once there, they start throwing rocks at each other, believe it or not!
