Festival of Dividivi

The Festival of Dividivi, which has been celebrated mid-year in Riohacha since 1969, takes its name from the wild tree that is the symbol of the department of La Guajira.  Its fruit resembles a green bean, and contains a substance called tanine which serves as a prime material for producing a liquid used to manufacture leather items. The Festival includes the crowing of “the Queen of Dividivi.”
