Visiting Ecuador in January

Ecuador rings in the new year with cooler temperatures across the mainland. In the central Andes region, the landscape bursts into life at the Devils’ Festival of Píllaro. Occurring between the 1 - 6 January, the origins of this festival are unknown but it is thought to have begun as a protest to Spanish colonisation during the 14th century.  Performers from local communities flock to the region, dressed in elaborate costumes and devil masks. Here, they dance and play live music in the streets to try and ‘seize’ the town from rivals. Enjoy delicious local delicacies and dance the Sanjuanitos.
