In the afternoon, after a typical lunch, we will walk to the highest point of the island where there is a ritual center (Pacha Tata and Pacha Mamá) there we will observe the sunset and scenic landscape. At night, after dinner with the host family, you will have a small meeting in a local community where you will dance and share culture with the Islanders.
