Three years and going strong

Juanno - Thanks for posting.

The organization for the festival is in full swing and it is looking great! Fantastic local music, international artists, games, kid's parties, great cuisine and that special festival feeling. Here is some background and check out the website at for more.

The Earthship Pitaya Festival was founded in 2008 on a very simple mission statement; to celebrate community, music and sustainability. This festival takes place annually in the heart of El Carizal, a small community along Nicaragua’s southern pacific coast. This community is also home to Central America’s premier Earthship, “Casa Llanta”, a completely off-grid home made from recycled materials and utilizing solar power, rain catchment, and gray water systems. It is in front of this marvel of sustainable building where all the magic takes place.

Now a multi day event which includes a photo exhibition at the Galleria del Sur all week, the Rainbow Sandals SUP Race on 2/17, our 2nd Annual Carizal Surf Comp presented by Quiksilver on 2/18, and performances by local and international artists presented by Claro on 2/19. We'd love it if you could be there. Three years and going strong
