Rodeo at Plaza Taurina Alberto Homberto e Isabel Mongrio - Other Activity Juigalpa - Nicaragua

Cowboy town that it is, it’s no surprise that Juigalpa hosts a popular rodeo every month. Thanks in part to a generous donation by the government of Taiwan, the town boasts an impressive rodeo ring where a variety of contests are held amid the shouts and cheers of passionate fans. Although the festivities officially begin at 6:00 pm, the action doesn’t start until after 7, and most people arrive fashionably dressed and fashionably late. If you do get there “on time” grab a beer and listen to the live orchestra play patriotic tunes. Once the emcee announces the national anthem, things really get rolling, with bull-riding, children racing goats and timed calf roping. Events vary monthly.
