Inti Raymi is one of the most important indigenous festivals, it is a historical tradition from the incas, but nowadays visitors can live it in Cusco and a lot of andean populations, if they travel there in June 24th.

In All souls’ Day, November 1st, people bring flowers and typical traditional food to the cemeteries, like guaguas bread and colada morada. Dresses and decoration are based on purple shades, as it represents a mourning color.

December 31st in Ecuador is like a combination of the 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas altogether.
