The annual Mango Fair in Baní began on Thursday night, and continues until Sunday evening.
The fair, includes presentations by international and national mango cultivation experts, as well as cooking demonstrations.
It continues with tours of mango plantations in the Baní area on Saturday, with explanations about cultivation, harvesting and processing.
The main square outside the municipal building is the site of an exhibition of the main local varieties, sale of mangoes and mango-based products, agricultural equipment, business platforms and production technology, and artistic and cultural performances in the evenings.
Cooking demonstrations will be given by teachers and students from the PUCMM University Hotel School, at the Perelló Cultural Center.
Looking to the future, the organizers are hoping that the event will help to promote the country’s “mango capital”, Baní, as an eco-tourism destination.
