On the 7th September a group of children from Punta Mujeres, Arrieta, and Haria put on a fantastic demonstration of synchronized swimming in the sea pool at Punta Mujeres as part of the local fiesta. The show was preceded by a dog show from Sara’s kennels.
For the last three weeks the children had been working hard learning how to do synchronized swimming under the instruction of Estefanía.
