Song of High Tide
A town tied to the tides.
Margarita is a star and our guide in Playa Piangüita. Reciting poems, singing and pianguando in a territory where myth merges with reality, the notes of an alabao predict the proximity of death and women like Francisca are as skilled at cooking as they are at “shooting”.
Nobody Dies Here Alone. Never!
We make space in the backpack for the rites that accompany two inevitable moments of the one who lives: being born and dying. In a region where the music made company to both. Please discover with us how the Pacific communities live their joy and pain.

LOG DAY 3
We arrived at Piangüita Beach early, this time our luck was better, good for almost everyone, I nearly got myself naked when I got off the boat. Anyway, it thrilled me; the dawn schedule had worked, the transports had arrived on time, and our guide for the day made his triumphal entry without delay.
