Municipality of Estancia
Last week of April
Fishing has become an important of Estancia’s part tourist industry. This coastal municipality is considering further development of its marine
fishing tourism to increase local economic benefits, but they also want to limit negative effects on the local ecosystem and for the inhabitants.
Every year, the people of Estancia gather to participate in the Panagat festival, a fitting tribute to the fishermen of the municipality. It is consider contributor to participant sense of identity and is also used as a means of maintaining peace between the people in the community and its neighboring towns by enjoying shared cultural practices together.
The festival is the perfect time for grilling, and residents can do it right at the main streets with grilling stations where mostly seafoods that taste delicious are grilled over an open flame.
