Mango Festival

Saturday the 17th of May, we ventured out again and took our local bus to the hiway. This time we boarded a bus headed west to Rio Hato

and the 3rd Annual Mango Festival. We were greeted by the Claro girl handing out information,

and then a table with all different types of mangos and papayas displayed on them.

So many types and sizes

Did you know there are over 15 different types of Mango’s. I believe most are edible…although, I’ve heard sometimes the taste might not be to your liking

We strolled through all the vender stands,

Mango displays and venders

and were treated to a sample of mango jelly.

Free samples always a hit

Very good!! Even pineapples were featured with their own display.

Once we got back outside to the main street, we enjoyed a papaya smoothie from one of the local venders.

It DOES taste better than this looks...

We walked down the street a bit

and then caught the bus back home before the rain set in.
