Every year the festival de la Piña Paradisíaca, or the “Pineapple Festival,” held in La Parguera (an oceanfront community in Lajas’ southern town), is celebrated. Local vendors sell pineapples, dozens of agricultural products, and fried foods.
Local bands provide entertainment throughout the evening. La Parguera is full of bars and restaurants and small hotels and charter boat rentals. There’s even a bioluminescent bay.
The celebration features a 5K race that offers a spectacular view of the marina, mangrove coves, and other attractions that make La Parguera an ideal getaway for tourists and locals.
