Caravana del Zorro

Saturday, February 6th, 2016

Today is Guatemala’s famous Caravana del Zorro, a massive motorcycle pilgrimage to the Basilica de Esquipulas.

This tradition started in 1961 and now days it gathers about 40 thousand pilgrims that make the ride from Downtown Guatemala City to the town of Esquipulas to venerate the Cristo Negro de Esquipulas.

Motorcyclists start to gather the previous night at Central Park.
